Project Management Services

Planning is essential to mitigating risks. Whether it’s a policy limiting the use of unencrypted portable devices or testing back-ups to ensure a disaster recovery plan is effective, having a strategy and a plan helps prevent the unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of ePHI. This means that interpreting and applying a compliance strategy requires added effort and oversight that clinical managers are often stretched to provide.

The HIPAA content experts at the Kentucky REC provide facility leaders with project management, long-range guidance and targeted mitigation on select vulnerabilities. The purpose is to reduce overall security risks to the organization, streamline implementation of risk planning, and improve education of critical Security Rule components to staff and leadership.

Contact the Kentucky REC today for more information on managing HIPAA compliance and reducing risk to your organization.
