Global Rap helps satisfy HIPAA’s contingency plan requirements when used as part of a complete HIPAA compliance program. Our cybersecurity capabilities ensure our healthcare customers are compliant with HIPAA regulations.
The department of Health and Human Services (HHS) provides a practices guide to help organizations create and implement contingency plans. Contingency planning is defined as “the strategy and organized course of action that is to be taken if things don’t go as planned or if there is a loss of use of the established business product or system due to a disaster such as a flood, fire, computer virus, or major failure.”
Health and Human Services (HHS) uses NIST’s (National Institute of Standards and Technology) Special Publication SP800-34 to lay out a 7 Step contingency planning process. Global Rap applies directly to Step 3 in NIST’s 7-step contingency planning process: “Identify and implement preventive controls and measures to reduce the effects of disruptions, increase availability, and reduce contingency costs.” The OCR noted over 200 covered entities will be audited in the next year and any healthcare covered entity without a formal, written contingency plan will be considered non-compliant.
