Breach Notification Support
If an incident is determined to be a breach, the covered entity (provider) is required to follow the federal HIPAA Breach Notification Rule as well as any applicable state notification rules. Managing this process is critical to meeting the strict notification deadlines required by OCR and other regulatory agencies. Our breach notification support manager coordinates with the covered entity, office staff, IT staff or outside company, attorney, insurance carriers, data forensics, and notification vendors to assist the covered entity’s legal team in meeting the requirements of the Breach Notification Rule. Our expertise allows us to efficiently gather the supporting documentation and detailed information required* for patient notification, breach notification to HHS, and media notification.
*CAEK does not provide the actual breach notification services but assists in providing documentation and managing deadlines.
