Physicians’ compliance wish list for 2014

Physicians’ compliance wish list for 2014 © CureMD Healthcare

Wish list 2014 • 2013 was rather happening in terms of healthcare laws • There was the Affordable Care Act and its security concerns, the HIPAA Omnibus final rule and the HIPAA Audit Program • 2014 is going to be no different • There will be plenty of regulation changes that the industry will have to face • The unanimous opinion of the respondents was that 2014 is going to be tougher • Almost everyone agreed that privacy concerns will continue to become more and more important

Strategies for the year 2014 • Conduct a HIPAA compliance assessment – This assessment will evaluate your current level of compliance, regulatory commitments and any shortcomings with regards to HIPAA privacy, security and breach notification rules – It should give you an idea of where you are lacking in terms of compliance, PHI security flaws and how to overcome the identified risks – As a generally accepted industry standard, a HIPAA compliance assessment should be done bi-annually to monitor changes and see progress against previous assessments

Strategies for the year 2014 • Develop an Incident Response Plan (IRP) – You should have a ready-to-execute Incident Response Plan (IRP) which will substantiate your organization’s readiness in case there is a data breach. Ideally, the plan should contain: • Roles and responsibilities of the Incident Response Team • The team’s incident risk assessment in determining whether the PHI-related incident is a data breach • Your organization’s policy for managing a data breach. • Relevant regulations for responding to a data breach, including notification requirements

Strategies for the year 2014 • Implement an incident risk assessment methodology – Implement decision support software to help your organization comply with HIPAA/HITECH’s revised standards and state regulated data breach guidelines – This should be conducted because every privacy and security incident is unique and requires consistent incident risk assessment including the rules mentioned in the HIPAA Omnibus Rule – Such type of assessments, whenever performed, must be documented and used if notification is required
