Compliance Audits

HIPAA compliance audits and Financial audits for healthcare providers.

HIPAA Security Risk Assessments

When your organization must comply with the US Federal government “Meaningful Use” reporting requirements you need a HIPAA Security Risk Assessment.  A SRA evaluates covered entities and their business associates to ensure they are compliant with over 130 HIPAA administrative, physical, and technical safeguards.

Applying and evaluating HIPAA safeguard standards requires security professionals with a great understanding of where Information Technology, HIPAA, and security compliance methods meet. 

Our healthcare IT professionals and CPA auditors understand how long-term care operations work and how they inter-relate with other vendors.  The Broussard Group helps navigate the SRA process and provide customized comprehensive reports designed to meet HIPAA security requirements as well as government reporting standards.

SOC Audits

Non-profit long-term care facilities and many other healthcare operators are required to have annual SOC audits for financial reporting and compliance.  Our audit team uses both Certified Public Accountants and Certified Information Systems Auditors who specialize in long-term care to perform financial and SOC audits.

Audit Readiness

First time auditees or organizations undergoing mergers or changes require preparation before undergoing a formal audit.  The Broussard Group audit readiness engagements help organizations get ready for audits by providing:

  • Business Analysis
  • Business Associate Evaluation
  • Risk Analysis
  • Risk Management Plans
  • Policy & Procedure Creation
  • Mock Audits
  • Post-Audit Remediation

Policy & Procedure Creation

A primary source of audit information is organizational policies and procedures.  Unfortunately, some healthcare organizations lack the formally drafted documents and policies required for HIPAA compliance or to be able to successfully complete a SOC audit or financial audit.  This is most often the case for smaller operators or organizations lacking the time and technical expertise needed to properly evaluate the requirements for compliance.

Our compliance team assists long-term care operators and healthcare providers with policy and procedure creation customized to fit their organization.  Through interviews, evaluations, and observations we gather the information necessary to create custom policies and procedures to standardize your business practices and to meet your compliance requirements.
