Privacy Risk Management

Designed to Help Achieve and Demonstrate Compliance

Protect your patients’ right to privacy by verifying and improving your privacy program with an assessment that measures your program against the policies and procedures necessary under the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules. CynergisTek can assess your privacy program and review your compliance state by conducting a Privacy Program Assessment. This assessment focuses exclusively on the HIPAA requirements, Uses and Disclosures of PHI and any applicable state privacy regulations. In a traditional HIPAA Risk Assessment, the privacy program is only mildly reviewed, whereas with this assessment, you will get a thorough review of your program’s current and necessary future state. Upon completion of the assessment, we provide a comprehensive report of findings and present it to key stakeholders in an educational workshop.
