HIPAA Consulting Engagement Phases
Here is a brief overview of all the phases involved in implementing HIPAA compliance.

Phase I - Scoping that includes understanding the Business, and ePHI Data Processing

Scoping involves the identification of:

  • Business entities,
  • Identification of epHI and its flow including lifecycle
  • Information systems in scope,
  • Business locations
  • Data Center and Cloud Services Providers
  • Users of ePHI

Phase II -
Gap Analysis and Risk Assessment

Based on the outcome of phase I, a combination of approaches is applied by Coral HIPAA security compliance consultants to conduct the gap analysis.

  • Coral consultants will take a deep dive to assess information flow, current assets and infrastructure and their protection methods.
  • A session with each organization team in scope to asses their current scope of work and their controls
  • This helps in the determination of applicable, and the not applicable controls.
  • This helps in determining the state of applicable controls in red, orange and green - determining their current status.
  • Coral HIPAA consultants will advise mitigation methods to address the identified gaps.

Phase III - Control - Design, Documentation, Implementation, Measurement, and Risk Management

  • The implementation journey are based on the number of gaps
  • Implementation involves discussing each gap with the team and advising changes in the short and long-term
  • Coral HIPAA Consultants will help in documenting policies and procedures - that will ensure requirements are addressed and implemented.
  • Each policy documentation or risk undergoes brainstorming with staff to derive at a ‘best-fit’ solution for the organization.

Phase IV -
Training & Brainstorming Sessions

  • Training of staff involved in HIPAA operations is a key factor in successful HIPAA implementation.
  • Depending upon the audience, Coral consultants will deliver a combination of training that includes awareness, risk management and standard interpretation.

Phase V -
Measurement of Controls including Internal Audit

Upon the completion of the implementation phase, Coral performs monthly tests of controls to ensure that designed controls are operating effectively.

  • These tests are conducted across all applicable HIPAA controls that are implemented
  • A formal report is published for the management team for the overall program effectiveness, especially the newly developed and implemented security controls and practices.


At this stage:

  • As a result of undergoing the previous phases, Coral has successfully implemented a HIPAA governance program that includes people, processes, technology and ongoing measurements.
  • Each of the HIPAA requirements has been completed by a combination of one or more of policy, procedures, responsibilities, reports, records, technology, and automation.
  • At this stage, the client defined an annual plan of tasks using which they demonstrate their ongoing commitment
  • At this stage, with all areas of HIPAA compliance being completed, the client can declare itself to be HIPAA compliant.
