Luckily, you landed on Planet HIPAA, Proof there is Intelligent Life in the Universe!
Planet HIPAA was uniquely created to help you and your organization make sense of complex federal regulations. We are here to help you avoid fines, criminal charges and nasty headlines while protecting the privacy and security of your patients who trust you the most. We provide hands on, fun, and interactive solutions to guide you through understanding the privacy and security requirements and implementing appropriate practices that give you a sense of relief and confidence in compliance. Our goal is to empower you through personalized guidance to become the expert in privacy and security practices in your organization.
Today, most solutions for HIPAA compliance look like these:
- HIPAA In A Box – Generic policies, procedures, and forms not customized to your organization with no guidance. You walk away feeling lost or even worse, with a false sense of security. Any costs saved are wasted on your time spent while still not being sure if you are truly compliant.
- High Priced Consultant – Great solution if you choose the right consultant and have unlimited funds. Everything will be customized and the consultant will spend time on-site at your organization speaking with you and your staff. Hourly fees, travel, reports, follow-up all starts to add up and costs can spin out of control.
Planet HIPAA believes there is a way to get the best of both solutions. What if a high priced consultant helped guide you on your HIPAA compliance journey at a fraction of the cost? This would take a special mind and solution and planet HIPAA is privileged to have both in our leader, Danika Brinda, PhD.
