Anesthesia Privacy and Security Policies

Is your organization prepared for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance? Do you have a HIPAA compliance plan for anesthesia with policies and procedures? If you do, have you recently reviewed your compliance plan, policies and procedures? Your organization must be prepared for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance. In order to be fully compliant your organization must have HIPAA Privacy & Security policies. Anesthesia Compliance Consultants will provide a plan with policies and procedures that offers complete coverage of the privacy, security and HITECH requirements so that they meet federal regulations and state law.

HIPAA in Clinical Practice

Established in 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) outlined the requirements for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that would serve to protect and secure health information. The program was divided into two rules, the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (Privacy Rule) and Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information (Security Rule). These created standards that all organizations who handle protected health information must follow.

Anesthesia Compliance Consultants will provide your organization with the policies, procedures and documents required for HIPAA compliance. These will give you the guidance to create a fully operational HIPAA Compliance Program.

A HIPAA Compliance Plan must accomplish the following:

  • Implement policies and procedures to ensure compliance

Business Associate Agreements

HIPAA requires that you have Business Associate Agreements with business partners that you contract with to provide non-treatment services if they access, use or disclose protected health information (PHI) on your behalf. Prime examples would include accounting, billing, legal, risk management and IT services. Accordingly, we will help you business associate agreements for your organization.

Privacy Complaint Response and Breach Reporting

We are available to assist with responses to HIPAA complaints and investigate any privacy or security matter on your behalf whether from a patient, another individual or the Office for Civil Rights. Anesthesia Compliance Consultants works with clients on the breach analysis to determine if they are dealing with a breach of unsecured PHI. For incidents that are reportable breaches there are steps and deadlines that one must follow for compliant reporting to the individual and to the Office for Civil Rights. Furthermore, we will assist you throughout the process from start to finish on all aspects including mitigation of damages, creating a corrective action plan, drafting notice letters and reporting to the OCR. Most importantly, we are experienced in responding to Office for Civil Rights investigative letters and working with them to resolve complaints.
