HIPAA Associates works with clients on presumed breaches. We will assist you in performing a breach analysis to determine if there is a breach of unsecured PHI. For incidents that are reportable breaches there are steps and deadlines to follow for breach reporting to the individual and to the Office for Civil Rights.
It is important to follow all necessary steps to report a breach successfully. Breaches vary depending on the facts and circumstances. Normally we draft the mandatory notice to the individual and the reports to the OCR on a case-by-case basis as there may be different reporting deadlines. We have the experience to know what information to include in a breach notification letter and in the report to the OCR. Additionally, we will guide you through the additional steps that must take place for large breaches that affect 500 or more individuals. HIPAA Associates manages breach analysis, notification to the individual(s) affected, mitigation of damages, retraining and reporting to the Office for Civil Rights.
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 Office for Civil Rights.
