So for an overall HIPAA consultancy, the following are our rough effort estimates:
A: 2-3 sessions of technology review to do a Gap analysis.
2 x 2-hour session + Prep Time + Findings Documentation = 10 Hours
2 x 1-hour session + Prep Time + Findings Documentation = 6 Hours
B: 5-6 30 minutes consults to get a mutual agreement of HIPAA related directions that are technically and business-wise feasible. = 6 Hours (including documentation support)
C: Email Correspondence and Q&A: 4-5 Hours
D: HIPAA Training to required employees: 1×2 hour session + 30 minutes Q&A= 2.5 Hours
