HIPAA Compliance Awareness Resources & Education (C.A.R.E.) Program is sponsored by the HIPAA Compliance Center and has been developed in order to create a trustworthy public resource, as well as provide assistance necessary for small to medium-sized covered entities to comply with complex HIPAA & HITECH regulations.
HIPAA SPACE Directory allows covered entities to demonstrate good faith efforts to protect PHI of their patients by attesting compliance publicly in a controlled environment. The directory serves as a free online resource to help patients make more educated decisions when choosing healthcare providers and sharing protected health information.
By registering your organization and you will be able to certify your practice and demonstrate good faith efforts to ensure privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) on a publicly visible Compliance Dashboard accessible from your company’s listing. Upon completion, you will receive a Certificate of Compliance which you can display at your location and a Certified Practice Seal for your website. Ultimately this will show your existing and new patients that you CARE about keeping their information secure, as well as provide an opportunity for your organization to be found in our directory by patients in your area.
The recent patient survey and study on HIPAA Breaches conducted by the Software Advice, Inc. published key finding in their report Minimizing Risks and Patient Fears IndustryView 2015. The results show that:
• 45% of patients today are concerned about privacy and security of their PHI
• 54% of patients are “very likely” to switch doctors if their PHI was improperly disclosed
• 21% of patients withhold PHI from their doctors due to data security concerns.
In return for participation in our network, we provide unbeatable HIPAA Compliance Incentive Offers and free assistance to qualified covered entities nationwide. Please submit a request if you would like to join our network and certify your practice to show your patients that you CARE!
