HIPAA One: Creating a Data Haven for ePHI

 Steven Marco, Founder
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in the wake of increasing Electronic protected health information (ePHI) breaches to prevent healthcare centers from risking sensitive patient data. In the hands of criminals, PHI can facilitate all types of crimes including prescription fraud, identity theft, and the provision of medical care to a third party in the victim’s name. To prevent ePHI falling in the wrong hands, Lington, UT based HIPAA One is assisting healthcare firms to remain complaint with regulations such as PCI and HIPAA, and avoid the threats associated with ePHUI breaches through reliable risk analysis. With HIPAA One as the partner, healthcare organizations can seamlessly fulfill HIPAA requirements and keep the patient’s data in a secure haven.

Being a leader of HIPAA security compliance software, HIPAA One aims at improving patient care, driving higher revenue, and reducing cost by simple, automated and affordable HIPAA Security and Privacy Analysis software. “We at HIPAA One understand and deal with patients fearing unprepared immanent Office of Civil Rights (OCR) investigation which often results in time-consuming medical processes, heavy fines or public declaration of personal information,” explains Steven Marco, Founder, HIPAA One.

In order to resolve the complexities pertaining to the healthcare information, HIPAA One, with its automated HIPAA Compliance software enables enterprises to identify threats, threat agents, and vulnerability analysis. “Our goal is to be the resource for seasoned audit professionals for third party assurances and enterprises seeking a solid foundation in HIPAA Compliance,” says Marco. Based at Lindon, UT, HIPAA One focuses at improving security systems within medical organizations and providing best-in-class software and consulting services to reduce ePHI breaches.

“Our software services deliver a well-planned engagement process which maximizes customer success by reducing liability and improving security,” says Marco. HIPAA One’s web-based onsite HIPAA Security Risk Analysis software offers healthcare companies a complete suite of consistent and qualitative services to reduce liability and improve security. “We are successful in doing so, by conducting periodic penetration testing and quarterly vulnerability scanning to ensure secure application coding practices on our platform,” says Marco. Furthermore, HIPAA One focuses on minimizing problems the healthcare industry undergoes by providing a secure, fast, and compliant solution. The firm is currently building HIPAA Privacy Risk Analysis, a next generation feature that provides simple, automatic, and quick high-risk vulnerabilities with a real-world action plan.

Various healthcare firms have leveraged the service of HIPAA One to resolve their data security challenges and remain compliant in their path. In an implementation highlight, San Juan Health Services—a firm built to securely store patient’s details— approached HIPAA One after they failed to comply with HIPAA Security Rule for electronically protecting health information. The healthcare agency then adopted HIPAA One, a HIPAA Security Analysis software, to adhere to the Security Rule. HIPAA One allows its customers to attest to Meaningful Use and securely store their patient information. “Within a week of its implementation, the HIPAA One Security Analysis software successful lowered San Juan’s EMR Security Risk and helped them stay compliant,” says Marco.

Unlike its counterparts, HIPAA One not only identifies gaps and weaknesses within the healthcare system, but also scans for vulnerabilities caused by hackers. Additionally, the firm updates software every time there is a change in legislation and regulatory mandates of the HIPAA Security Rule. These features enable HIPAA One customers to regularly check for vulnerabilities—securing the network and private information from unauthorized access.
