All organizations that store, process, or transmit Protected Health Information (PHI) must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). HIPAA Vitals is a free solution that helps organizations assess their compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule.
HIPAA provides high-level requirements for safeguarding PHI. The challenge for many organizations is to identify policies, processes, and controls necessary to meet the compliance requirements and protect PHI. HIPAA Vitals helps organizations solve this challenge.
The HIPAA Vitals assessment is based on several reputable sources including Office of Civil Rights (OCR) Audit Protocol, NIST 800-66 Rev. 1, HIPAA Security Series issued by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), and years of experience implementing HIPAA requirements in different organizations by our professionals. The assessment scope is driven by the technical profile and other factors specific to the organization.
