OREM, Utah, Aug. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Not only are most healthcare providers overwhelmed by the 157 requirements mandatory for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, they also may not possess a solution to document HIPAA requirements they've already completed. The SecurityMetrics HIPAA Dashboard, an easy-to-update online interface that doubles as a documentation tool, simplifies the HIPAA compliance process into straightforward actionable steps for healthcare providers.
Within The SecurityMetrics HIPAA Dashboard, a customized to-do list prompts users on next-step items that must be addressed to comply.
"Most providers know about HIPAA, but don't know where to start," said Tod Ferran, HIPAA Security Analyst at SecurityMetrics. "Instead of potentially missing critical security implementations for patient data protection, SecurityMetrics HIPAA Dashboard users can visualize their path to compliance and feel confident it's actually achievable."
Specifically designed for compliance officers, risk managers, healthcare practitioners, and office managers, the portal allows customers to:
- Complete a thorough HIPAA Risk Analysis
- Execute a HIPAA Risk Management Plan
- Access privacy and security policies/procedures
- Track workforce training
- Assign specific to-do's to employees within an organization
- Document business associate agreements
- Download HIPAA compliance reports for audit preparation
The SecurityMetrics HIPAA Dashboard also opens access to trained HIPAA Security Advisors that walk users through any problems or questions they encounter on their HIPAA compliance journey.
Providers need not start their HIPAA process from scratch year after year, but merely update their account with system changes that occurred within the year and follow the Risk Analysis and Risk Management Plan recommendations that follow. To additionally assist throughout the entire process, all customers have access to 24/7 HIPAA support agents.
