Learn more about the Founder and CEO of HIPAA alli

Hi, my name is Kimberly Shutters!

I am the founder and CEO of HIPAA alli, established in 2013, to assist the medical community with HIPAA Privacy & Security Compliance activities.

My passion is in educating my clients on how to incorporate HIPAA compliance requirements to ensure the privacy & security of their patient’s data. I have a talent for teaching people how to cut through all the confusing regulations and do the things that matter. And for people who don’t have the time or interest to do it all for themselves, I can assist them.

After moving from Connecticut to California, I returned to school where I earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, focusing on computer programming. I have over 25 years in the Healthcare industry, working with Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Urology, and Otolaryngology.

My experience includes almost 10 years in the Biotech industry as a Software Verification & Validation Engineer. This required creating any software policies & procedures, risk assessment (analysis) and risk management reports and any other essential documentation necessary for submission to the FDA CDRH & CDER divisions.

I am a member of Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA), American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), and American Medical Billers Association (AMBA). I also serve as the secretary of the board for PHI Protection Network (PPN); and I am volunteering on the PPN 2016 conference Planning Committee.

I live in San Diego County, California with my husband, Michael. When I am not glued to a computer screen I spend my spare time with my cats, reading, gardening, digital photography and hiking.
