HIPAA Compliance Consulting & Training

A number of pharmaceutical marketing business functions are impacted by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA (see Pharma HIPAA & Privacy Impact Study, below). These functions include inbound and outbound call centers, sample fulfillment programs, patient assistance programs, direct mail pharmacies, electronic couponing, direct mail marketing, patient compliance programs, physician-patient community development, etc. Even though your company may not be a HIPAA "covered entity," it will be affected by HIPAA because of client expectations and by being a business associate of covered entities. To remain competitive, you must develop a HIPAA "compliance" program that satisfies these needs.

VirSci's HIPAA Compliance Consulting service is designed to help you achieve a level of HIPAA and/or other privacy regime compliance within an acceptable timeframe and to meet your tactical and strategic objectives.

HIPAA Educational Services

  • Pharma Sponsored HIPAA Newsletters & Training - many health care providers are unsure how to apply HIPAA privacy and security rules in their practices and in their interactions with pharmaceutical sales representatives. Pharma-sponsored, third-party HIPAA education and training, much like sponsored CME, can help support physicians when there are no other "white knights" in sight. Examples include:
    • HIPAA & Privacy Readiness Monitor Newsletter - this newsletter is an example of a single-sponsored, value-added resource for pharmaceutical account managers and sales reps to help them service the information needs of their covered entity clients.
    • Sponsored Online HIPAA Training - VirSci Corporation has teamed up with a major supplier of online compliance programs to offer a unique HIPAA training solution, called Care and Attention, which is ideally suited for training both physicians and their support staffs of physician practices.

  • HIPAA Training Plus - the HIPAA legal and regulatory requirements is an opportunity to assess and address larger organizational challenges. The HIPAA Training Plus program includes a training assets assessment, a training program using the appropriate mix of pre-packaged and custom instructional tools, and organizational change management to integrate HIPAA into the client's overall work flow.
