Complex Compliance Made Simple for Businesses
A post-acute care organization with sites nationwide and over 10,000 employees turned to Crossroads to implement a complete HIPAA program. The organization as a whole was in a vulnerable state. They were not compliant with regulations and had recently lost of their current CIO. We had already been managing their Electronic Personal Health Information (ePHI) for the previous seven years and they felt confident in our ability to establish HIPAA standards into every faucet of their operations. Our IT Management and Cloud Computing relationship with this client expanded as we provided strategic Regulatory Compliance Consulting.
Our dedicated consulting experts proposed a plan that brought this client into compliance over a 5 year period. This included risk assessments, business associates agreements, training of personnel, policy and procedure implementation, asset management services, and encryption for the entire organization. Our Consulting Services guided this organization’s complete compliance program from start to finish. By the end, they ascended the three stages of HIPAA with a HITRUST certification of compliance.
Another client, a nursing home, had the same need for assistance in performing a HIPAA risk assessment. Over a short period of time we were able to advise them how to effectively and properly manage their compliance. Our services for this client went far beyond performing a risk assessment. We conducted a pre-audit of their HIPAA compliance protocols and procedures, as well as provided a complete compliance program.
A different nursing home client with multiple care centers required support when it came to achieving HIPAA compliance. We performed a comprehensive risk assessment, then orchestrated the implementation of protocols and procedures to guide them to attaining complete compliance within their organization.
We have found that 1 in 4 healthcare organizations are not HIPAA compliant, leaving them vulnerable to hefty fines, required remediation, and loss of reputation. We are dedicated to successfully simplifying these complex and evolving set of regulations to ensure the success of our clients.
