Effective compliance is not only the ability to have government compliance strategy in place, but also to be able to manage risks and potential violations
While the company focuses on compliance and security, importance is also given to audits, which are regularly conducted by the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). Third Rock has proven experience in simplifying healthcare organizations’ processes of HIPAA IT audit certification through its audit solution, Third Rock Assurance.
The solution enables IT staff to easily implement and maintain HIPAA and HITECH guidelines. Being an intelligent design, the auto¬mated solution reduces the workforce and cost, vital to achieve and maintain ongoing HIPAA compliance. The solution also monitors systems detecting and altering any unauthorized changes, along with generating historical HIPAA compliance reports.
Third Rock understands a disaster recovery system is essential, apart from an organization being compliant and fulfilling audit requirements. The company takes a complete look at business critical systems to discover what risks exist and how they would impact the business. Third Rock’s architects, using their Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Solution, guide their clients through the process of building the best plan to fulfill requirements. They use best practices, apply them to their businesses’ unique environment, and keep them well prepared for any disaster.
The company continues to work with more healthcare providers eliminating confusion about HIPAA/ HITECH requirements. They have also protected their clients against HIPAA non-compliance fines, lawsuits, resulting from stolen patient data, negative social media, costly breach remedies, and expensive audit fines. Working along with various clients, Third Rock continues to provide HIPAA training to improve organizations’ understanding about medical programs, specific job responsibilities, and the importance of enforcement of policies and procedures.
