Hybrid Entity Assessment

Give your organization critical insights on who and what falls under HIPAA hybrid entity obligations.


Designating your organization as a hybrid entity isn’t a simple process. It requires a precise and nuanced understanding of every part of your business operations. CynergisTek determines your designation as a hybrid entity by reviewing documentation, interviewing key stakeholders, and assessing the activities of departments to understand which offices and people are engaged in covered functions and should be part of the health care component (HCC) of the hybrid entity.

Key Benefits


Reduce Risk 

Assessing your organization’s compliance efforts may reduce enforcement actions and verifies that you’re engaging in best practices. 


Identify Gaps

Our assessment methodology is designed to identify gaps in policies, procedures, practices, or processes and provide recommendations so you can remediate the gaps. 


Subject Matter Expertise 

Our consultants have explicit experience designating covered entities as hybrid entities, including the often complex environments of universities, academic medical centers (AMCs), counties, and other multi-faceted organizations, so you can be confident that we fully understand the nuances. 


Organizational Alignment

Pair comprehensive documentation and interviews with internal organizational education to confirm that the entire organization is aware of which operations and departments are identified as the HCC.  

Having a partner that is actively monitoring our systems, trends, local and global threats not only saves the Virtua IT Security team time, but provides us with the ability to proactively look at potential threats to plan accordingly. The partnership with CynergisTek has allowed us to focus on compliance, developing risk programs, policy and procedures leading to a culture focused on making us more secure.

CIO, Virtua

Security has become a necessary and critical strategic pillar for our organization, and it is too broad and complex for a provider organization to keep up with on their own. Having a partner like CynergisTek with depth and breadth of knowledge and expertise is a crucial asset for our organization. I can’t imagine navigating these issues without them.

CynergisTek’s social engineering and phishing service was an excellent training tool for our organization. A third-party assessment of how our policies and procedures would stack up against a real threat was eye-opening and provided us with valuable information we can leverage to continue to enhance our security posture.

We just had our Incident Response exercise and I wanted to let you know that I have received a lot of positive feedback from all participants including our Executives and Board Members. Everyone was impressed at how the exercise was well-prepared and conducted. Obviously, it goes to your leadership. You were able to relate to all participants, ask the right questions, and in general keep the exercise going forward. You did a great job! Thank you so much CynergisTek!
