Benefits of our remediation services include the following:

  • Independent, objective assessment of internal controls and what remediation services need to be performed.

Procurement Services for Compliance Tools

Many of the regulatory compliance mandates for HIPAA/HITRUST require procuring, implementing, and maintaining a plethora of security solutions. If you’re in the healthcare industry, then you’ll need to implement two-factor authentication, file integrity monitoring, audit logging/audit trails collection, and more. The North American healthcare market is one of the most heavily regulated industries in the world, and it shows with the number of tools and solutions you’ll need. Why FLANK, then? Because we can find your organization the right product at the right price, saving you an incredible amount of time and money on sourcing and implementing various tools and solutions.

  • We actively identify all major vendors and solutions, effectively mapping them to your organization’s needs.
  • Determine technical specifications, needs, scoping parameters for ensuring the right solutions.
  • Act as your advocate in obtaining the best pricing and service model available.
  • Assist in implementing all solutions, if necessary.

Ongoing HIPAA/HITRUST Compliance Management

Compliance is a constant, a never-ending process. Because of that, you need to spend considerable time each year in maintaining your compliance efforts. It means assessing, testing, correcting, and remediating internal controls – and that’s time-consuming, indeed. It also requires personnel competent in the ways of regulatory compliance – another challenging endeavor. Why get stuck with a massive payroll for regulatory compliance when you can save thousands on a contracted compliance officer? Don’t forget the huge health and benefits costs these employees also command. Is there a better solution? There is – turn to FLANK’s compliance outsourcing solutions and services for HIPAA/HITRUST, and any other regulatory mandate you have.

Benefits of FLANK’s compliance outsourcing solutions for regulatory management include:

  • Regular testing of internal controls from an unbiased, independent third-party.
  • Clear, concise and transparent reporting to management on finding and remediation concerns.
  • Implementation of efficient workflow procedures in collecting audit evidence for your HIPAA/HITRUST auditors.
  • The ability to stay impartial and objective for all of your ongoing compliance management activities.

Completion of Vendor Security Questionnaires

An essential – and very time-consuming – process for growing your business is answering those long, detailed, and terribly mundane security questionnaires. They can literally take hours to complete, and it seems like nobody within an organization really wants to take ownership of such a task. Can you blame them! With one’s workload as full as it is, the last thing somebody wants is a dreaded security questionnaire from a prospect or current client. FLANK’s compliance outsourcing solutions and services for HIPAA/HITRUST and other healthcare regulations regarding vendor security questionnaires includes the following:

  • Taking complete ownership of the entire vendor security questionnaire process, from answering each question to submittal back to vendors, along with follow-up as needed.
  • Building a structured process that allows us to answer questionnaires quickly and efficiently with the use of a customized database of pre-populated answers.

Contracted Outsourced Compliance Officer

Regulatory compliance is the new norm, thus the importance of having a competent and capable compliance officer is highly essential. But why spend close to six-figures (or often more!) – and not to mention health and wellness benefits – on a full-time regulatory compliance officer? The most cost-effective and better decision is to hire FLANK as your compliance outsourcing solutions and services provider for HIPAA/HITRUST and other healthcare regulations. We’ll get the job done.
