Privacy & Security Certification
By obtaining SECURETexas certification, a covered entity has demonstrated compliance with state and federal privacy and security rules.
Benefits of certification include:
Increased confidence. Obtaining certification boosts confidence of consumers and business partners when they know protections are in place to better safeguard PHI.
Security Assessment. Certification can serve as objective third-party evidence of your entity’s compliance with privacy and security rules.
Streamlined Regulatory Analysis. Objective third-party evidence of certification can help streamline an audit or review by OCR or other state actors.
State-Law Mitigation. Certification provides a mitigating factor for violation of the Texas Medical Records Privacy Act.
HIPAA. Certification can act as objective third-party evidence of an entity’s history of prior compliance with the HIPAA administrative rules, which must be considered by OCR when considering a civil money penalty amount.
