We have prepared recommendations for you regarding HIPAA compliance as we migrate to remote work.
Faced with the current pandemic, and following recommendations from the WHO and government alike, many organizations suddenly had to work from home. Many teams, individuals, and processes have had to adapt; what is reassuring is that the majority of them were able to do so. We understand the challenges this situation presents, so in order to help others best make the transition, we have decided to repackage our internal HIPAA overview document for everyone to reassess their setup and audit their overall compliance.
2020 has brought new updates to HIPAA rules and standards, although some have already wavered, we suggest you follow the recommendations for self-auditing and the due diligence of your business associates. We will all focus on scalability and being able to respond in a timely fashion to the demand, however, any new resources and partners need to be vetted systematically. In case you want to consult with someone prior to setting up your own self-audit, reach out to our team and we will help you map out and design the processes that will ensure your compliance.
