SectyrHub RA/BA

SectyrHub RA/BA

Intuitive healthcare compliance workflow solution

Finally, a solution that is intuitive, yet comprehensive enough to meet HIPAA/HITECH requirements in the areas of security compliance, privacy compliance, breach notification and business partner risk. SectyrHub RA/BA is a SaaS workflow solution that strengthens your compliance posture by enabling best practices and benchmarking consistent with HIPAA/HITECH requirements.


 

Regulatory Compliance

Sectyr Regulatory Compliance

The Challenge –

Risk Management is one of the most challenging and time-consuming responsibilities.  You are responsible for ensuring your organization is HIPAA/HITECH compliant, while following the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established Privacy, Security, Enforcement and Breach Notification rules. Failure to comply with the guidelines can result in monetary fines and negative press for your organization.

The Solution –

SectyrHub™ Regulatory Compliance Dashboard provides intuitive, yet comprehensive workflow processes to support all teams associated with risk management. 

The HHS.gov website describes the standards and implementation specifications of the Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.   SectyrHub incorporates the workflow outlined by HHS but provides flexibility to modify your processes, to meet the changing needs of your organization,  while documenting compliance in accordance with state and federal guidelines.  Having a centralized process within SectyrHub allows your organization to collaborate and delegate tasks to those team members (Compliance, Privacy, Legal, Information Technology, etc.)  responsible for the protection of health information adapt quickly to the questionnaire workflow and SectyrHub dashboard monitoring tools and compliance reporting.

 


 

Vendor Relationships

Sectyr Vendor Relationships

The Challenge –

The HIPAA Omnibus Rule of 2013 has a significant effect on business associates and business associate agreements.  You work with hundreds, maybe thousands of business associates and are responsible for assessing and monitoring the risk associated with doing business with each vendor and/or service provider to protect patient privacy.

Organizations must continually review whether they have added new vendor systems or formed affiliations such as a new outpatient/surgery centers or medical practices.   Any new technology or addition of service providers needs to be accounted for and could affect how an audit is conducted.

The Solution –

SectyrHub™ 3rd Party Relationships provides a collaborative approach for your organization and your business partners to evaluate, address, monitor and maintain compliance at all levels of risk and sensitivity.   Having vendor contact information, completed questionnaires with associated risk levels and agreements online ensures you are well prepared for an audit.

 


 

OCR Audit Readiness

Sectyr OCR Audit Readiness

The Challenge –

Studies show that the number of Office for Civil Rights (OCR) enforcement activities is growing, and those in violation show a lack of adequate Risk Analysis.   Will the Risk Analysis and Risk Management focus continue?  Research and those in authority say YES!  You’ve read about fines organizations have received due to security breaches, but the overwhelming task of pulling this all together has limited the work you’ve performed.

The HIPAA Statute describes a process for identifying and weighing risk and also for addressing and controlling that risk.  Recent audits show a widespread lack of compliance, so the opportunity for enforcement is great.   Assessments are NOT a one-time exercise that goes into a drawer but needs to be comprehensive and on-going.   

The HIPAA risk assessment is always essential during the inspection process. 

Moreover, the Department of Health and Human Services states that a risk analysis should be an ongoing process  (https://www.hhs.gov/hipaa/for-professionals/security/laws-regulations/index.html) “By conducting these risk assessments, health care providers can uncover potential weaknesses in their security policies, processes, and systems,” HHS explained. “Risk assessments also help providers address vulnerabilities, potentially preventing health data breaches or other adverse security events. A vigorous risk assessment process supports improved the security of patient health data.”  Finally, HHS requires organizations to “maintain continuous, reasonable, and appropriate security protections.”
