Best-in-Class Cyber Risk Management and HIPAA Compliance Solutions for Behavioral Health Providers
With cyberattacks growing in number and sophistication, behavioral health organizations find themselves at great risk to the breach or loss of patient data and the disruption of care delivery which can negatively impact the health of patients as well as the reputation and performance of the organization.
To better protect themselves against the threat of ransomware and other crippling attacks, leading healthcare providers are recognizing the need to implement more robust programs for managing cyber risk and maintaining the privacy and security of their patients’ health information.
Recognized by Black Book Research as the top-rated Compliance and Risk Management Solution Provider to the healthcare industry in 2017, 2018, and 2019, Clearwater has developed a full range of solutions designed specifically to meet the needs of behavioral health organizations and other providers. Hundreds of healthcare customers have deployed Clearwater’s Enterprise Cyber Risk Management Software, IRM|Pro®, as a cost-effective, SaaS platform for assessing HIPAA compliance, conducting an OCR-Quality® Risk Analysis, and managing cyber risks on an on-going basis. IRM|Pro is ready to use out-of-the-box and thus provides a simple and streamlined solution that can be rapidly implemented in smaller provider organizations.
In addition, Clearwater’s team of HIPAA Compliance and cybersecurity experts delivers efficient, fixed-cost consulting services including strategic risk assessment, risk remediation, compliance assessment, HIPAA policy and procedure development and training, and technical testing. Our team includes members who completed careers as behavioral health specialists before transitioning into HIPAA Compliance and cybersecurity, bringing deep understanding of the unique needs of behavioral health organizations, and the compliance challenges of meeting not only HIPAA requirements but also the requirements of 42 CFR Part 2.
Clearwater also offers a full-service, multi-year program, ClearAdvantage™, through which our team stands up, executes, and matures your cyber risk management program, while also ensuring all necessary activities to appropriately maintain compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Breach Notification, and Security Rules. During this process, we will transfer our expertise to your organization so it can be as self-sufficient as it wants to be at the end of the program.
