HIPAA Consulting Engagement Phases
Here is a brief overview of all the phases involved in implementing HIPAA compliance.

Phase I - Understanding Business, and ePHI Data Processing

  • Every client is unique with its business model, customers and business objectives.
  • The HIPAA implementation journey starts with this phase where we determine and document the clients’ ePHI processing requirements.
  • Determination of covered entity and/or business associate
  • Determination of applicable HIPAA requirements

Phase II -
Gap Analysis and Risk Assessment

  • As the name suggests, this phase is aimed at determining both the current controls and the ‘missing controls’.
  • In addition this phase involves determining ePHI and its lifecycle, with its assets that store, process and/or transmit the information.
  • How comprehensive is the HIPAA security risk assessment? We perform a 3-phase risk assessment that involves information assets, security controls, thereby giving clients an unparalleled view of their security risks.
  • Gap Analysis phase is a key phase in designing security control responsibility to the organisation’s stakeholders.
  • This is where identified gaps, applicable controls (based on applicable HIPAA requirements), with their references to stakeholders and policy/procedure/practice requirements are determined, and documented.

Phase III - Design, Documentation and Risk Monitoring

  • Design involves control allocation responsibility to organisation stakeholders.
  • Documentation involves drafting 20+ policies and procedures. Major policies includes technical, physical, administrative, technical, and organisational safeguards.
  • The phase involves brainstorming with policy owners and training staff to align them with documented controls and policies.
  • Risks identified in the gap analysis are tracked towards closure.

Phase IV -
HIPAA Safeguards Measurement

  • Measurement involves testing the HIPAA ePHI Security implementation effectiveness and giving a 0-100% score.
  • We have a structured methodology using that we score HIPAA security requirements based on interplay of business transactions with HIPAA security requirements, and present this to the management using a formal report.

Phase V -
Internal Audit and Management Review

  • Internal Audit involves verifying the effectiveness of the implemented lifecycle controls through interviews with physical and system verification of applicable security policies, as it applies to the organisation control design.
  • A formal report is published for management committee.
  • We facilitate reviews with the management to ensure that the initial Privacy policy objectives and goals are achieved.
