Agile compliance is a group of methods based on an iterative and incremental approach where compliance solutions evolve through collaboration between cross-functional teams.
Agilepromotes adaptive planning, evolutionary development and implementation, and a time-boxed iterative approach which encourages rapid and flexible response to changing regulations and operational environments that are quickly morphing.
Healthcare is undergoing 150 years
of change in five (5) including, but not
limited to, EHRs, Pay 4 Performance,
ICD-10, ACA, Quality Measures, Pricing
transparency, mHealth, BYOD, Mergers
& Acqusitions, Telemedicine...and the
list goes on...Agile Compliance is the
ONLY way to survive in this
Agile is a conceptual framework that promotes foreseen interactions throughout the implementation cycle and acknowledges that due to a changing operational, technical, and regulatory environment the implementation cycle never ends.
Agile compliance is how an Organization goes about changing its compliance DNA.
This article, based on a Ponemon Institute survey, fairly summarizes what many of us know through anecdotal evidence to be the state of privacy & security within the healthcare industry. Simply put, it remains dismal, almost five years after the HITECH Act.
Part of the reason is cultural. Healthcare has been, and remains, the most insular and myopic industry in the U.S., bar none. Based on a million and one false assumptions, the culture within healthcare has been "we are SO different than everyone else" and therefore the same rules don't apply. Those illusions (and delusions) are in the process of being significantly disrupted. However old ways of thinking die hard!
I once had a Chief Medical
Officer of a major hospital tell me that
he would rather retire and move to
Mexico than comply with the HITECH
We may literally have to wait for a generation of old docs (mostly men) to retire before we see real progress in healthcare, and not just regarding privacy & security. All the change that the healthcare industry is currently struggling with is destroying the "world view" of a generation that refuses to believe this kind of disruption is possible. Change is hard for everyone, BUT for a few that were once so privileged it may be devastating, and just too much to handle.

HIPAA Risk Assessment Training – Our HIPAA Risk Assessment Training Module gets you up to speed on the mandatory HIPAA Security Rule's Risk Assessment implementation specification. A Risk Assessment is required to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule and also to comply with Meaningful Use Stage I's Core Objective 15 and attestation. A Risk Assessment is foundational to your HIPAA Security Rule compliance initiative and your Organization is likely to be found in "willful neglect" if you ignore this requirement.
We walk you through our best practices based Risk Assessment methodology while at the same time clarifying the often confusing Risk Assessment lexicon of threats, vulnerabilities and risks. We teach you how to implement a repeatable process that can be used any time a Risk Assessment is triggered such as when significant changes occur within your operational environment or when there are material changes to applicable law.
PACKAGE CONTENTS: You get a training video, presentation, and a Risk Assessment Quiz (with answer key) that can be used to verify your Risk Assessment training class attendance within. The training video is well suited for group and/or individual training.
QUICK and EASY CUSTOMIZATION – You could spend thousands of dollars developing training in house or pay consultants more to do the same. This Risk Assessment Training Module provides your organization with our files in native format so that you can customize the training to your organizational requirements or use it as is right out-of-the-box.
REUSE IT – Reuse our training materials over and over as you add new members to your workforce.
