Most people use Gmail these days.  It’s great, and a lot of medical practices also want to use Gmail at work.  They want to have one system where they can email each other and patients.  Some even want to use Google Drive to replace a conventional EMR.  Here’s the good news -- you can absolutely make G Suite HIPAA-compliant.  There’s more to it than meets the eye, though...

Why should you make G Suite HIPAA-compliant?

Here are three good reasons to finally make sure your G Suite is compliant with HIPAA:

Hefty fines. You don’t want to be fined $111,400 like the practice pictured to the left. They had a breach and HHS found out their G Suite wasn’t properly configured.

You’re tired of worrying about it. Most practices we meet know their G Suite isn't HIPAA-compliant, but they never get around to fixing it.

It’s the right thing to do for your patients. We know that HIPAA is a pain in the neck. Your patients are trusting you to keep their medical data safe. Don’t break that trust.

Top 6 G Suite HIPAA Mistakes Practices Make

We’re experts at moving small medical practices to G Suite. It’s a fantastic product, and can certainly be HIPAA-compliant. But only if you set everything up the right way. 

Here are 6 G Suite HIPAA mistakes we see practices make every week: 

Free Gmail is not HIPAA compliant! Unfortunately, Google won’t sign a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) for their free Gmail product. That means there’s no way to make your free Gmail compliant with HIPAA.

Rushing through the setup. When we do a G Suite setup, it takes 3 - 5 hours to do a proper setup in compliance with the G Suite HIPAA Implementation Guide.  If you didn’t spend a similar amount of time (or probably more, since we do these setups all the time), there’s more work to do.

Messing up the HIPAA BAA. Did you sign the Google BAA? Good, but you’re not done! The BAA is the FIRST step to being HIPAA-compliant. A lot of practices don’t read the BAA, which legally obligates you to make quite a few other changes.

Setting up secure email. Think you’re HIPAA-compliant because you bought secure email and slapped it on your G Suite account? Sorry, no. Secure email is just one small slice of making G Suite HIPAA-compliant.

Ignoring HHS security guidance. A lot of people don’t realize HHS published detailed cybersecurity and ransomware  guidance. You can comply with these using G Suite, if you know what you’re doing.

Ignoring your computers and smartphones. HIPAA doesn’t stop at G Suite.  Most people use both a computer and a smartphone to access their Gmail and Google Drive. That’s perfectly fine if everything’s set up the right way. Computers and smartphones are NOT HIPAA-compliant out of the box.

What Our Clients Say...

Testimonials

"AdeliaRisk is exactly what I needed for my business, I’m in healthcare and protecting PHI is critical. We've been using Google's G Suite for a while now, but we weren't sure if it was set up properly. AdeliaRisk made it so we don't have to worry. They took care of our email security, made sure our computers were set up the right way, and even took the time to train our staff on how to be safe, secure, and HIPAA-compliant."


Mark Lescault (Grace Barker Health, RI)

"As a nursing service specializing in prescription management, we handle ePHI for multiple practices. We need to be able to prove that we are HIPAA-compliant and safer than the medical practices we serve. AdeliaRisk made sure our computers and email were set up correctly. We use a secure version of Google’s G Suite that makes it easy to securely send and receive emails from patients, other practices, and insurance companies. I highly recommend working with AdeliaRisk if you want to make sure your company is safe, secure, and HIPAA-compliant."


Jennifer Cameron (PR NRX Solutions, CA)

"I find it difficult to keep up with the ever changing HIPAA regulations. After spending hours on my own research, I was more confused about who to trust and what to do. AdeliaRisk set everything up the right way, and made my emails safe and secure. The best part? I barely had to spend any time on it at all!"


Deborah Nixdorf (Corvallis Natural Medicine, OR)
