The West Virginia Primary Care Association (WVPCA) is partnering with Online Business Systems to provide on-site HIPAA Security Risk Assessments for West Virginia Community Health Centers. Online Business Systems will perform the assessment to identify risks to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) as defined by the Department of Health and Human Services. Online will provide written recommendations regarding any identified gaps in compliance with HIPAA regulations. Online Business Systems will work with the health center to mitigate any identified gaps and help the organization work toward HIPAA compliance and the HITECH Act information security requirements. Estimated timing of Risk Assessment for clinics will be determined based on the number of clinics participating.
HIPAA Security Risk Assessment services will include but are not limited to:
  • HIPAA Compliance Gap Assessment
  • Policy and Procedure Review
  • Interviews with IT, HR, Training, Credentialing, HIM, Facility Managers
  • Physical Security Inspection
  • Review of Telehealth Processes and Procedures
  • Assessment of Vendor Management Processes and Business Associate Agreements
  • Development of Risk Assessment Report
Online’s approach is highly collaborative. At any point during the Security Risk Assessment, identified non-compliant issues will be communicated to the Points of Contact in a manner agreed upon during the kick-off meeting.

Each party will designate a Single Point of Contact (“SPOC”) that has the authority to represent such party and has decision-making authority for most matters. All material communications should be conducted through the SPOCs which will either be in writing or summed up in writing.

At the conclusion of this engagement, each health center will be provided a Security Risk Assessment Report, which will clearly identify any identified security risks and recommendations to assist in addressing identified risks as part of a Security Risk Management process. Upon request, Online will also provide a letter attesting to the fact that the organization conducted a security risk assessment on the given dates and an overall opinion on the compliance status of the organization.

This event is intended for Health Center Controlled Network (HCCN) participating FQHC's and LALs.

Please note that limited participation slots are available for CHC SRAs!!! Assessments will be provided on a first come, first serve bases.
