Chief Operating Officer and HIPAA Privacy Officer at dmi Networking
Santa Rosa, CA
I believe in a Value-Forward approach to consulting, with an emphasis on education and taking the fear out of compliance and IT management. I meet with dentists, oral surgeons, and other medical providers for IT planning and HIPAA compliance, and provide education on legal requirements as well as the multiple ways to address them. I perform full risk assessment completion and policy design for dentists, with risk scoring and mitigation road mapping as per the ADA and OCR guidelines. I come from a background of Database Design for a telemedicine company, so HIPAA risk analysis, reporting and data management is part of my professional makeup. I perform project management and installation for new Dental Startups or existing practices undergoing remodeling, and coordinate with contractors and technicians as necessary. I manage an IT company that provides support to dentists nationally. I've designed our remote management plan to include automated security monitoring, managed antivirus, encrypted backup, email encryption, virtualization and easy remote support and ticketing for our technicians. I provide free advice and consultation over email, so feel free to connect with me here on LinkedIn if you feel that I can help. My specialties are: • HIPAA Compliant IT Delivery • Risk Analysis and Mitigation Planning • Managed Services Design & Implementation • Automation of Support Through RMM and Scripting • Consultation, Direct Sales and Training • Comprehensive Risk Analysis • Policy & Procedure Design • Client Management • Data Correlation & Analysis • Illustration and Presentation • Dental Office Networking, hardware and software
