Cornichon Healthcare Select updates HIPAA tool


Cornichon Healthcare Select has launched HIPAA Safeguard Version 2.0, a self-assessment tool. It aims to help covered entities and business associates affordably achieve and demonstrate compliance with HIPAA, HITECH and Meaningful Use requirements for safeguarding healthcare information.

Version 2.0 includes a NIST-based risk analysis template, safeguard policies and procedures written in “plain language” that covered entities and business associates can tailor to their business operations using risk analysis findings, required forms, and a concordance linking Meaningful Use security requirements with HIPAA security standards.

Ed Jones, Cornichon Healthcare founder and owner, said: "We created Version 2.0 in plain language and with lots of "what to do" understandable NIST guidance because we found that covered entities and business associates focusing on their core businesses did not understand how to interpret and implement arcane language of federal HIPAA and HITECH Act regulations."
