HIPAA Risk Assessments Help Ensure Compliance

Our consultants are experts in both the Privacy and Security regulations. Because of this experience, we can quickly assess your organization's level of compliance and then help you develop a plan to eliminate any risks which were encountered.

If your organization needs help with HIPAA, we are the source. We can step in and move the process along quickly. Or, we can take a back seat and just support your staff during the process.

Clients are Talking

"We appreciated the collegial working relationship with all the Litmos Healthcare staff during our HIPAA Privacy and Security Risk Analysis. They were very willing to work with our scheduling needs, and worked well with our staff. We appreciate the areas of expertise they brought to the independent review, and felt having that outside validation of our compliance plans was valuable."

"Litmos Healthcare helped us to do exactly what we needed to meet compliance. They helped us evaluate the potential for health-information leaks, then supported us while we fixed the holes."

Risk Assessment Includes:

Physical Security: Assess the building grounds, windows, filing cabinets, alarm systems, and access control.

Contractual Organizations: Are there business associate agreements in place where they should be? We create custom agreements if needed.

Access to Protected Health Information (PHI): Service personnel entering premises before, during and after business hours.

IT Security: We analyze all software, networks, passwords, old equipment disposal, PDAs, VPNs, removable media, firewalls, computer room, laptops, and encryption.

After the assessment, you receive a complete "bill of health" telling you where you are in compliance and where there are risks that need resolution. We use simple terms to explain exactly how "healthy" you are. Here's what you will see in the compiled report:

  • Current network diagram.
  • Network vulnerability outline.
  • Application criticality matrix.
  • Probable threat/impact matrix (external issues).
  • Vulnerability matrix (internal issues).
  • ePHI inventory.
  • Security risk matrix.
  • Remediation recommendations.

Find Security Threats in Your Network that Expose You to Hackers

New vulnerabilities are discovered every day and hackers are becoming more adept at abusing these security faults to break into your network. Adopting a proactive approach to combating these threats is critical to protect your organization's private patient information. Here's how our vulnerability scan works:

  • Finds areas in your computer network that are at risk of being hacked.
  • Receive a complete report of vulnerabilities.
  • Offers a list of issues that need resolution.
  • If you need help plugging the holes, we can do that too.

Mitigating your organization's risk from security threats can be a complex and difficult process. Contact us to learn more about our Computer Vulnerability Scans. Download a fact sheet here.
