We are excited to announce the launch of our Clearwater HIPAA Security Assessment™, an interactive, web-based navigator designed to guide companies that handle electronic Protected Health Information to full HIPAA compliance.
The HIPAA Security Rule (45 C.F.R. §164.308(a)(8)) requires an initial security compliance assessment covering 22 security standards and 53 implementation specifications prescribed by the regulations. This interactive, web-based portal simplifies that process, immediately identifying gaps and making compliance less overwhelming.
The Clearwater HIPAA Security Assessment leads risk managers through a series of interview questions regarding the current state of the organization’s HIPAA compliance. The application rolls up the responses into executive level dashboards, providing a snapshot of the current level of compliance and a tool to measure ongoing progress. To guide efforts to improve the level of compliance, the navigator automatically populates a risk remediation plan, outlining corrective steps that need to be taken once the compliance assessment is completed.
As an added benefit for subscribers, Clearwater Compliance continually monitors HIPAA-HITECH compliance regulations and updates the assessment tool in real time to automatically reflect any changes in the regulations. Subscribers have ongoing access to the compliance assessment, its dashboards, reports and remediation planning to measure continued progress. Additionally, subscribers receive monthly updates on HIPAA-HITECH and have access to online support and vast privacy, security and data breach resources. The Clearwater HIPAA Security Assessment can be used as frequently as an organization requires, as specified in the regulations, to ensure ongoing compliance.
A subscription to Clearwater HIPAA Security Assessment costs $1,500 per year or $150 per month. For a limited time, you may enjoy a complimentary 30-day trial. Please visit http://clearwaterc.wpengine.com/shop/hipaa-security-assessment-software/ for more information or call 800-704-3394 to speak to one of our representatives.
