SecureGRC SB™ (HIPAA / HITECH) Channel Partner Step by Step process for selling, installing, and supporting eGestalt’s SecureGRC SB HIPAA/ HITECH Compliance software

At a low, annual end user subscription list price, SecureGRC SB (HIPAA / HITECH) allows to add on services and additional products to deliver a complete compliance and security solution to the huge, untapped small office Health Care market.

Selling to a small medical CE. ALL medical practices, called Covered Entities (CE) must be HIPAA and HITECH compliant. It does not matter if they don’t use on-line billing or EMR (See a list of type’s of CE’s in Attachment A). If they serve patients they must be compliant or they are breaking the law. Now, if they have no technology what so ever, then they still need to be complaint, but it is much simpler process. The more technology, such as Email, on-line applications, EMR, Off-site backup, etc, increase the complexity of becoming and maintaining compliance and this is where SecureGRC SB comes in.

Complete list of all required policies and procedures available

Secure GRC SB is a simple WEB based assessment or questionnaire tool that leads the CE to understand what they need to do to become compliant. See example # 1 . Example # 1

The CE or BA fills out this form, and if they have evidence such as a policy or procedure that is required, then they attached it, and the system now catalogs and secures all the required supporting evidence. As an additional value add, eGestalt provides sample copies of all required polices and procedures.

Elevator Pitch As I am sure you are aware HIPAA and HITECH have become front page news. Since the passing of HITECH in February 2010, both the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) and your states Attorney General have been very aggressive in pursuing non-compliant healthcare practices, regardless of size. It is also a requirement for you to get any reimbursement for implementing an EMR system. The penalties and risk have increased dramatically, although the odds of getting audited are still low, if you lose any patient data, such as losing a laptop, employee theft, outside hacking, etc, you could risk losing your practice if you cannot prove compliance. Getting and maintaining compliance in the past has been very expensive, complicated and time consuming, however we are now offering a simpler, inexpensive way to help you get into and maintain your compliance.

Assessment Review Once the CE has completed the assessment as best they can, normally the channel partner would review the answers with the CE and make suggestions on how to resolve the remaining open issues. SecureGRC SB has suggested ways of solving the problem or best practices. (See example # 2). Although this is not required, this is an excellent opportunity to up-sell additional services.

Elevator Pitch Once this process is complete, the CE will “Submit” the completed assessment. It is now permanently stored in the system and can no longer be modified. This is where Channel Partner will take the output of SecureGRC and prepare a final report. The exact steps are in Attachment C.

See sample # 3 for an example of the first output report and example # 4 for the final deliverable. The final deliverable is called a Report on Compliance or ROC. This is a standard word template and you can simply cut and paste and deliver without modification, or this is an outstanding opportunity to review the data and identify additional sales opportunities.

Additional Sales opportunities. As part of the assessment process SecureGRC SB will identify specific area within IT that the CE will need to implement. The good news is these items are required by the LAW, so you have big government on your side. As a minimum: Encryption Unified Threat Management Firewall Virus protection Secure Back up Simple Access control There will also be opportunities for many other services and technologies.

Another great sales opportunity are the Business Associates or BA’s (For a list of BA types, see Attachment B). BA’s, if they have access to Patient information are required, by law, to be HIPAA and HITECH complaints. According to HITECH law, the CE must have a signed agreement and proof of compliance form the BA. SecureGRC SB specially asked the CE for a list of their BA’s, a copy of each agreement and proof of their compliancy. This is a great prospect list for you to call on. You can call on behalf of the CE to acquire a copy of the BA’s proof of compliancy, which of course they will not have. This is an opportunity for you to sell compliance services into the BA.. Once you close the BA, you can follow up with their CE’s. And the cycle continues.

These instructions are available in very specific detail in hard copy and in self paced video. Channel Partner will have a master SecureGRC SB account. When a CE or BA purchases SecureGRC SB, Channel Partner will need to provision this account. You create a login ID and input other details on the customer You then load a copy of the standard assessment into the customer’s account. The system will generate an email and send the login credentials to the customer. Once the customer has completed the assessment, Channel Partner will take the output and cut and paste into an excel template provided by eGestalt. You will use this spreadsheet to quickly identify “Out of Compliance” conditions and how to help the client remediate the problem. Once the client is finally done, you will do the same process cut and paste into the same excel template. Then from this template, cut and paste into the Word ROC temple. Initial provisioning takes about 7-10 minutes. Final reporting takes about 2 minutes to create. Review and recommendations are dependent on the end user.
