We offer the following HIPAA Security services:

  • Conduct compliance audits
  • Perform independent risk assessments
  • Assist clients in developing self-assessment tools
  • Develop remediation plans to fill gaps found in assessment
  • Development of "Best Practices Manual" for multi-facility clients

HIPAA/HITECH

Aegis Compliance & Ethics Center, LLP works with clients large and small to develop cost-effective health information privacy and security compliance solutions.

When the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996 ("HIPAA") became law, very few people realized it would have such a broad effect on health care providers some nine years later. HIPAA implementation and enforcement has come in waves  and the consultants at Aegis Compliance & Ethics Center, LLP have been out in front helping providers, health plans, and business associates implement HIPAA  and maintain HIPAA compliance throughout HIPAA's staggered compliance dates.

On July 20, 2010, Aegis Compliance & Ethics Center presented a webinar on the the proposed modifications to the HIPAA Privacy, Security and Enforcement Rules. You can download a recording and the slide presentation from that webinar below.
