How to be HIPAA Compliant?
Most of the business associates do not know the complete requirement to achieve HIPAA compliance, hence most are not compliant with HIPAA rules. The first step we recommend is to assign one person as your HIPAA compliance officer (HCO) who will be responsible for privacy and security rule compliance. The next step will be for this person to take the HIPAA compliance training of CHPSE for your HCO and one-hour overview training for the rest of your staff. This training will help HCO to understand the complete requirements of HIPAA and manage the next steps towards compliance. The company will need HIPAA privacy and security policies and procedures, a security contingency plan, security risk analysis, and ongoing audits.
How can we help you to achieve and maintain your HIPAA Compliance?
The following solutions can help you to get the training for your HCO and buy HIPAA compliance templates to jump-start your compliance.
The first package, for Business Associate with 50 employees or fewer, comes with several options:
We also offer HIPAA Certification for Business Associate and products used by healthcare industry.

Our certification will help you in proving your compliance status.
