Healthcare is a highly regulated industry. Health information technology laws, regulations and best practices are constantly evolving. Recognizing that entities need help in this area, the Texas Health Services Authority (the Authority) is offering not only SECURETexas Certification, but also compliance services that better enable covered entities to become certified.

The Authority’s team assists health care providers and other health stakeholders with questions regarding compliance with all relevant privacy and security regulations, including state and federal provisions. This includes advising entities on their policies and procedures, reviewing business associate agreements and other contracts to ensure compliance with relevant provisions, and other such projects.

The Authority team includes privacy and security professionals experienced in the practice of health law and healthcare regulatory compliance with certification in healthcare privacy compliance.
