Healthcare Data Security, Privacy, and HIPAA Compliance
We assist our clients in understanding their responsibilities imposed by HIPAA’s complicated rules and regulations, including developing appropriate policies and procedures for handling, accessing, storing, and disclosing Protected Health Information (PHI) as a covered entity or business associate.
Moreover, our healthcare attorneys are experienced and skilled in guiding covered entities through the reporting or investigation process associated with breach notification, security incidents or complaints of unauthorized disclosure of PHI.
Experience and Expertise:
Assisted clients exposed to reporting and compliance issues for privacy issues involving anywhere from 1 – 45,000 participants.
Performed countless breach analyses for clients in an effort to determine reportability, because not all disclosures trigger a reporting requirement.
Investigated and prepared formal responses to numerous patient-reported breaches to office of Civil Rights (OCR).
