TLD Systems Guide
The guide is meant to assist you in documenting your annual HIPAA Risk Assessment. Each of your offices needs to do a HIPAA Risk Assessment annually to be compliant with the HIPAA and HITECH laws. Our system, which is located at https://hipaa-manual.tldsystems.com will help guide you through the documentation of that assessment which is a necessary part of that process. In many cases, the questions themselves may be the main guide for your assessment. By answering all of the questions, you will be guided through a review of the physical and logical security in your office and on your computer systems, along with the proper documentation of employee training, computer backups and many other topics, some of which you may not have considered to this point. It is possible, and even likely, that you will need to engage your IT professional and your medical software vendor(s) to assist you in this process the first time you go through it. If at any time you feel that the site itself and this guide do not give you enough information to answer a question properly, give us a call at (631) 403-6687 and we will be happy to assist you.
