Healthcare organizations must ensure that they comply with all standards, implementation specifications, and audit protocols of the HIPAA Privacy and Breach Notifications rules. Both of these rules apply to all protected health information (PHI), whether in electronic, paper, or any other format.

Gain a comprehensive, documented baseline assessment of your organization’s compliance status with respect to all requirements of both the Privacy and the Breach Notification rules, not only ensuring compliance but demonstrating your commitment to protecting PHI to your stakeholders and customers.
