HIPAA Audit Program Released - adds it to Compliance Management Kit
Updates include Privacy Compliance Policy and Risk Management mitigation
Park City, UT Janco Associates, Inc. Janco Associates Inc. (e-janco.com) has just released a HIPAA Audit Program and a major update to its Compliance Management Kit. The CEO of Janco Associates, Mr. M.V. Janulaitis said: “The world continues to move into the digital age. As business systems and operations increase in complexity, the burden of maintaining compliance is more time-consuming and expensive. CIOs know that Ransomware mitigation and changes in privacy and security mandates are happening so rapidly they have limited ability to be proactive. With the ever-increasing reliance on the Internet and electronic communication privacy and security compliance are more critical.” The CEO added, “The HIPAA Audit Program and Compliance Management Kit address these issues directly.”
Mr. Janulaitis said, “Janco has reviewed the compliance requirements of over 500 enterprises. We found that all organizations had to meet some mandates. When health benefits are provided that can trigger a requirement to comply with HIPAA. IHIPAA has to be complied with by organizations that have any medical information on individuals.”
The CEO added “Medical enterprises have been disproportionally impacted by Ransomware and data breach cyber attacks. HIPAA mandates that enterprises in those industries conduct risk assessments and mitigation exercises. The HIPAA Audit Program is a critical step in that process. We have now added the HIPAA Audit Program to our Compliance Management Kit so enterprises in other industries can take advantage of the tools developed to address those threats.”
The release of the 2022 Compliance Management Kit is now available for immediate download. The kit comes in three versions Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Each contains the HIPAA Audit program. All the versions are available either with 12 or 24 months of update service. With the update service, Janco’s clients can be assured they will have the tools necessary to meet all mandated requirements and risk mitigation tools. The versions are:
- Silver Edition with the Compliance Management White Paper, a self-scoring Security Audit, a PCI Audit Program, the HIPAA Audit Program, and 25 key Job Descriptions including Chief Security Officer (CSO).
- Gold Edition includes everything in the Silver Edition plus a Record Classification and Management Policy and a Privacy Compliance Policy with a detailed implementation work plan.

Janulaitis said, “Each component in the kit has been reviewed and updated within the last 90 days and meets the latest mandates. In addition, the firm has looked ahead at proposed legislation and addressed many of the issues impacting privacy and security.” He also said, “With this offering, Janco has balanced enterprise operational needs, with legal record retention and disposition requirements, and privacy mandates for both GDPR (EU) and the CaCPA (California Privacy Legislation) in a workable cost-effective solution.
