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 2015, to assist the medical community with their HIPAA Security Compliance activities.

My passion and soapbox mission is to bring awareness, education and prevention solutions for Business Associates (BAs) to help them understand how their daily activities impact the privacy and security of their patients’ Protected Health Information (PHI).

I have over 25 years in the Healthcare industry, working with Primary Care, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Urology, and Otolaryngology. My experience also includes almost 10 years in the Biotech, as a Software Verification & Validation (V & V) Engineer. This required creating the software policies & procedures, risk assessment (analysis) and risk management reports and any other essential documentation necessary for submission to the FDA CDRH & CDER divisions for 510(k) and BLA submissions.

I approach HIPAA compliance, by incorporating my background in as a medical biller, CPT/ICD coder and medical office manager, and as a medical device V & V engineer. This diverse background gives me a unique perspective into the difficulties faced by medical practices in meeting their compliance responsibilities.

I am a member of American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), and American Medical Billers Association (AMBA). I currently serve as the secretary of the board for PHI Protection Network (PPN); and volunteered on the PPN 2016 – 2017 conference Planning Committee.

I’m a California transplant, moved for school and stayed after marrying my husband, Michael. When I am not glued to a computer screen I spend my spare time reading, gardening, digital photography and hiking. Would love to learn how to drift drive too!!
