Compliance Consulting Subscription

The Ongoing Nature of Compliance

The only way to create a culture of compliance is to make its practice an ongoing process, not a one-time project. With our subscription-based compliance consulting service and supporting cloud technology, you can create the compliance-based environment that helps you succeed.

Our monthly compliance consulting subscription program places privacy expertise for secure information within your reach.

Consider: Your organization has 100 people (or far fewer) in its workforce. You’re a successful healthcare organization but budgets are tight. Professional privacy and security consulting projects cost hundreds of dollars per hour, totaling far more than the average practice’s consulting budget.

How do you become, and remain, compliant with the Privacy, Security and Breach Notification Rules?

We’ve crunched the numbers to come up with an affordable, supportive, professional solution for your privacy and security needs.

Ideal for organizations with no more than 100-person workforce, or that have a cloud-based (SaaS) EHR, our subscription-based compliance consulting package allows you expert, personalized service from Apgar and Associates. For a 12-month subscription commitment, you’ll get:

  • An initial privacy and breach compliance assessment and security risk analysis
  • A remediation plan and timeline specific to our findings
  • Secure, cloud-based compliance documentation and action management technology
  • Expert assistance on how to remediate
  • Recommendations for vetted product vendors, if applicable
  • Customized, current policies and procedures – privacy, security and breach
  • Webinar-based workforce training and testing on HIPAA and state-specific laws
  • Monthly check-in calls to review remediation progress, troubleshoot and talk about HIPAA challenges
  • End-year follow up privacy compliance assessment, security risk analysis
  • Updated remediation plan

If you’re worried your office is too small to qualify, contact us. We may be able to customize a package just for you.  

Why do we offer compliance consulting option like this?

Commitment goes both ways. We work with many organizations that have just a few practitioners – doctors, nurse practitioners, dentists or behavioral health. We know you’re all committed to care, you’d like to be committed to compliance, too, but it’s a non-stop, ongoing process.

Our experience shows that the average “one off” consulting project that includes a Security Risk Analysis, Policies and Procedures, training and general compliance consulting time averages about $10k. Paying this within a short time period is hard on the average healthcare organization’s budget, and pressures key staff that may already be stretched thin.

In our subscription model, the projects and the costs are spread out, there’s a specific scope and included related tasks, plus you get continuity of support.

Why can’t your IT department or outside IT vendor handle all of the security side?

Typical IT security protocol does not address what you need in place for a truly compliant privacy and security program, particularly one that aims for breach risk reduction. EHR vendors do not count as IT security specialists. Once an EHR is implemented, the EHR vendor support is limited to troubleshooting the application.

So please, talk to us about your current IT structure so we can determine the best way to support you.
