HIPAA and PCI Risk Assessmentss
The first step toward easy and affordable compliance
PK Tech understands PCI or HIPAA compliance can be overwhelming. You can make the process less daunting and confusing by signing up for a comprehensive assessment that evaluates your compliance successes and shortfalls.
With the results of your assessment, you will be fully equipped with the knowledge necessary to expedite compliance. When that information is applied with a managed solution from PK Tech, you’ll have the tools, templates and expertise you need to meet the demanding requirements of HIPAA and PCI regulations.
Thanks to step-by-step guidance from our HIPAA experts, regular risk assessments and security breach tools, your security and compliance posture will improve regardless of changes to best practices and relevant legislation. Our managed compliance solution also includes ongoing employee training, financial protection, and more!
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
HIPAA policies, procedures and omnibus rules affect every piece of IT hardware and software in your office. Even organizations that don’t fall under the umbrella of “Covered Entities” (health plan providers, health care providers, health care clearinghouses, etc.) may be subject to stringent regulations. For example, any individual or company that works with a Covered Entity and has access to Electronic Health Records (EHR) is considered a regulated “Business Associate.”
Covered Entities and Business Associates are required to protect all the electronic health information they have access to, and if they are breached, there are costly procedures for notifying affected patients and the Department of Health and Human Services.
PK Tech ensures businesses never need to issue a breach notification thanks to solutions such as:
- Data Backup
- Email Encryption
- Security Training
- Employee Compliance Testing
We also provide templates for:
Emergency Operations Procedures
Business Associate Agreements (BAA)
Notice of Patient Privacy (NPP)
Employee Termination Procedures
The entire process starts with detailed risk scoring and reporting, and by the time it's finished, you'll have financial indemnity up to $200,000 per practice, per year. Throughout the process, you get HIPAA whitepapers, face-to-face guidance from our trained experts and access to EHR-certified technology that satisfies Meaningful Use Requirements.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS)
If you process credit card payments, regardless of whether they are related to patient care or not, you’re also required to adhere to PCI data security standards. HIPAA and PCI requirements are similar, but not exactly the same.
Complying with Payment Card Industry regulations also requires a threat analysis, risk determination and certification, but there are a few key differences.
We can help with:
- Compliance Monitoring and Auditing
- The Self Assessment Questionnaire process
- Financial indemnity up to $100,000 for penalties, audits, and fines
- Security incident responses
Whether it’s consulting and remediation from our Qualified Security Assessors or business continuity and disaster recovery planning from our technicians, PK Tech’s goal is to package all your compliance needs into one turnkey solution.
More than just centralized compliance tools and portals, PK Tech provides clients with customized policies and procedures for minimizing compliance costs and complexities in the long term. But everything starts with a free risk assessment.
