It is more important than ever for healthcare organizations to maintain a privacy program that is compliant with all applicable U.S., state, and international regulations, as well as healthcare-specific industry regulations, and it is critical for these organizations to be prepared for a potential privacy incident or a government audit. Guidehouse works with healthcare providers, payers, and pharmacy companies to assess their current state of privacy compliance and security readiness. We will then establish compliant and effective privacy and security policies, as well as processes and training programs that meet regulatory requirements and safeguard Protected Health Information. Additionally, Guidehouse can support investigation and remediation efforts if a healthcare organization is faced with a privacy or security incident, or a data breach. Our cross-functional team of Privacy and Information Security experts have held high-ranking positions within the FBI, law firms and healthcare organizations, and have also served as interim chief privacy officers and directors of privacy.
We work with clients to:
Identify potential gaps within an existing Privacy and Information Security Compliance Program, including through a Security Risk Assessment or Office for Civil Rights Mock Audit
Provide tools and identify controls to reduce or eliminate identified risks and potential risks
Apply regulatory guidance, standards, and best practices to enhance an existing privacy and security environment
Establish or review processes for readiness in responding to a privacy or security incident, or a data breach
Provide remediation support to gaps in a privacy or security program, including assistance with policy development, training, business associate management, and privacy risk analyses
