Essence of the Role
PHIflow is looking to hire a Privacy & Compliance Director to be the Team’s subject matter expert on HIPAA, regulatory requirements, privacy laws and interpretation of those laws specifically as they apply to HIPAA Business Associate Agreements (BAAs). We are looking for an experienced compliance professional who is interested in taking an innovative, outside the box approach to HIPAA compliance and data security regulations; someone who understands the regulatory compliance landscape but feels that it can be managed better. The ideal candidate is creative and willing to take a hands-on role working alongside PHIflow’s leadership, legal and product teams and will also play a key role in many public-facing aspects of the Company. This position will report directly to the Chief Operating Officer.

This role is best suited for someone with at least 10 years of hands-on healthcare compliance experience, specifically in Health Information Management, with a focus on privacy and security and protection of PHI. Experience reading and reviewing BAAs is required. Experience with Office of Civil Rights’ (OCR) HIPAA Privacy and Security Audit Program is a plus. This candidate has deep understanding of the 2013 Omnibus Final Rule and is up to date on HITECH changes and changing state privacy laws. Successful completion of undergraduate studies is required. Law degree or legal coursework is a plus, but not required. Various healthcare compliance certifications (CHC, CCEP, CHPC, CISSP, CIPP and the like) are welcomed and continuous education will be supported!
