SOC 2 HIPAA Scoping & Readiness Assessments: It’s important to understand that when performing a SOC 2 HIPAA assessment, you’ll need to determine scope. More specifically, is your organization simply looking to validate compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule Safeguards of 164.308 to 164.316, or are you also looking to comply with the HIPAA Privacy rule requirements also?
Additionally, don’t forget about the HITECH Act. Just remember that for HIPAA, scope is absolutely critical as it ultimately dictates cost and time commitments for such an engagement, so talk to the SOC 2 HIPAA experts today at Texas Compliance, LLC. Call and speak with CPA Christopher Nickell at 1-888-447-2209, ext. 701 today to learn more.
After determining what the actual scope of your SOC 2 HIPAA audit will be, it’s then time to begin a much-needed scoping & readiness assessment, for which Texas Compliance, LLC can assist. We’ll identify gaps and deficiencies that exist within your internal controls structure, providing critical feedback and recommendations on essential remediation that needs to be performed prior to the commencement of a SOC 2 HIPAA audit.
Since 2011, Texas Compliance, LLC has performed numerous SOC 2 HIPAA engagements and are ready to assist your organization today.

What We Offer for SOC 2 HIPAA Reporting for Texas Businesses
SOC 2 HIPAA Remediation Services: Essential remediation is generally necessary for SOC 2 HIPAA compliance. From an almost endless list of security/controls that need to be re-configured to missing HIPAA information security policies and procedures, CE’s and BA’s often find quite a bit of work to do prior to the audit.
Bottom line is that almost every service organization undertaking SOC 2 HIPAA compliance will need to execute some type of remediation – how much – that ultimately depends on one’s internal controls and how mature they are.
More specifically, CE’s and BA’s can spend as little as a few hours on remediation, or possibly a few months, it’s a question that’s difficult to answer and assess until you’ve performed all necessary remediation services identified during the SOC 2 HIPAA scoping & readiness assessment. Call and speak with CPA Christopher Nickell at 1-888-447-2209, ext. 701 today to learn more.
SOC 2 HIPAA Type 1 Audits: The most followed path for service organizations new to SOC 2 HIPAA compliance is to kick the process off with a SOC 2 Type 1 assessment, then graduating to annual SOC 2 Type 2 audits. It’s critical to note that a SOC 2 Type 1 assessment is a point-in-time, while a SOC 2 Type 2 assessment is over a test period, generally six months, but sometimes shorter, and sometimes longer.
SOC 2 HIPAA Type 2 Audits: After successfully achieving SOC 2 HIPAA Type 1 compliance, most, if not all, organizations move ultimately forward with annual SOC 2 Type 2 reports, and for some obvious reasons. First and foremost, Type 2 reports are performed over an agreed upon test period, generally six months, yet sometimes shorter, sometimes longer.
This allows for intended users of such reports to gain a much stronger understanding of a service organization’s control environment as opposed to SOC 2 Type 1 reports. Texas Compliance, LLC has performed hundreds of healthcare compliance audits over the last decade, so talk to us today about your SOC 2 HIPAA reporting needs.
