When evaluating OfficeSafe as a whole yoou must compare all the services available.

Most of HIPAA compliance costs is from the materials and policies, training, employee costs, and services for data backup and encryption, and asset protection.

Take a look for the detailed breakdown, but generally we estimate:

HIPAA Compliance Materials  – $500 a year
Business Associates Agreements – $300 an hour
Employee Time/Overtime – $20-30 an hour
In-Office HIPAA Training  – $3,000 – $5,000 a year
Data Backup and Encryption – $500 – $1,500 a year
Asset Protection / Cyber Insurance – $3,000-$5,000 a year

Assuming your employee and attorney spend an hour a month working on HIPAA compliance you have an estimated cost of $10,840 a year!

This excludes the peace of mind you will have ensuring you are HIPAA Compliant.

Materials and Policies:

Medical and dental compliance books can cost up to $500 per year, while legal preparation for Business Associate Agreements and new policies can cost $300 per hour.

Employee time:

Hiring new employees or asking current employees to work overtime to meet HIPAA’s standards can easily cost $20 to $30 or more per hour and eat up valuable staff time

HIPAA training:

Depending on the size of your practice, in-house HIPAA training can run from $3,000 to $5,000 per year — sometimes more.

Data Backup and Encryption:

Depending on the amount of data your practice is responsible for, backup and encryption solutions can run between $500 and $1,500 — or more.

Asset protection:

Asset protection or a cyber insurance policy can cost between $3,000 and $5,000 per year. While coverage isn’t required, some level of protection may become instrumental if your practice experiences a cyberattack or other data-related event.

HIPAA RISK ASSESSMENT

There are several key steps PCIHIPAA goes through to assess risk. Our specialists are trained in HIPAA legal protocol & have developed a process to assess risk. We take every precaution necessary to ensure that your business is in complete compliance with all HIPAA guidelines.

First we identify all potential risks. We examine your unique business structure and its risks for HIPAA violation. Next, we examine potential vulnerabilities. For example, an older practice may rely on paper documents. Are these files in a secure location or are they easily accessible? How are documents with sensitive information disposed of?

We also determine the level of risk certain conditions create and the cost of altering or remedying those conditions. Switching an entire office to an electronic file management system to avoid compromised security, may not be necessary or worth the cost. Once impact and risk are determined, we consult with our client on how to best manage their communications & information sharing methods to protect both the patient & their practice.

HIPAA DATA BACKUP

Does your business receive, store, process, or transmit ePHI (electronic protected health information)? If so, meeting the HIPAA data backup and recovery requirements is key. PCIHIPAA implements solutions for your business to satisfy the Contingency Plan Standard specifications for Data Backup and Disaster Recovery.

Ensuring your business is up to date with the Contingency Plan Standard doesn’t only assist with keeping you in compliance with HIPAA. It also backs up essential information that could otherwise become lost or misplaced in case of a severe system error. Safeguarding electronic protected health information (ePHI) is made easy with our Data Backup Solution.

Our software is formulated according to HIPAA protocol to provide a clear picture of your level of compliance. It eliminates any confusion and possibility for error.

HIPAA RISK SCORE

Based on your business’ communications & information sharing methods, our specialists calculate a HIPAA Risk Score. The score is based on how well your business is protecting the privacy and sensitive medical information of your patients. A poor score suggests major changes must be made in order to ensure the welfare of your patients & practice. A strong score is indicative of a practice that may need some minor changes but is already fairly compliant with HIPAA. Failure to assess your business against current HIPAA protocol is “willfully neglectful” and may incur violations and fines. We work with your business to ensure you are completely up to date with HIPAA regulations.

First we identify all potential risks. We examine your unique business structure and its risks for HIPAA violation. Next, we examine potential vulnerabilities. For example, an older practice may rely on paper documents. Are these files in a secure location or are they easily accessible? How are documents with sensitive information disposed of?
