Hinshaw & Culbertson Leverages Software to Address 2013 HIPAA Rules Affecting Law Firms

We've been covering the new 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Rules with great interest, given the pending September compliance deadline. Firms continue to take action. Hinshaw & Culbertson, a national law firm with a top-ranked professional responsibility, legal malpractice and professional liability practice group, leverages IntApp Wall Builder and IntApp Activity Tracker to satisfy the access control and audit requirements of the 2013 HIPAA Omnibus Rule.

Said Hinshaw Assistant General Counsel Steve Puiszis:
  • "As our firm advises multiple peer law firms on issues relating to professional responsibility and risk management, we considered it imperative to focus our own HIPAA compliance efforts to maintain the excellent standard of care we deliver to our clients. IntApp Wall Builder and IntApp Activity Tracker play a central role in our HIPAA compliance strategy, as technical controls that enable us to secure and track matters containing PHI without disrupting lawyer productivity or collaboration."
Added Hinshaw Director of Information Technology Jim Devereux:
  • "IntApp Activity Tracker will not only enable our firm to address the audit requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule, but also alert my team of any abnormal access to sensitive documents that may signal a pending lateral lawyer departure. Activity Tracker is a must have for law firms looking to mitigate information risk and verify compliance with access policies and procedures."
Pat Archbold, Head of IntApp's Risk Practice Group noted:
  • "We’re delighted to highlight Hinshaw’s leadership in risk management and compliance. Law firms working to address the new HIPAA requirements can look to Hinshaw as a standard for effective compliance."
  • "We invite any firm interested in learning more to visit this link to learn more about how we assist with HIPAA compliance for law firms, and to watch our recorded panel webinar on compliance requirements and strategies."
