HIPAA COMPLIANCE: Safeguard Your Patients AND Your Practice.
Your practice is at risk of being hit by huge Federal fines unless you follow the stringent rules required to protect your patients’ private health information. The Federal government is cracking down on all medical and health related operations like yours, and issuing million dollar-plus fines for violations of the HIPAA Security Rule.
The law requires that you conduct an annual Risk Analysis to identify issues in your computer network – and your procedures — that could compromise the integrity of electronic patient health information (ePHI). The law also requires you to retain a Management Plan and Evidence of Compliance to document the remediation of discovered issues in the event of an audit.
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Our company specializes in conducting comprehensive, confidential HIPAA Risk Assessments for health and medical organizations like yours. We use a combination of specialized software, on-site observations and interviews with your staff to uncover a broad range of issues that could result in a data breach and/or a fine if discovered by a random government audit. Resolving some of issues may be as simple as training your employees to update passwords. But others could be much more serious and involved, like changing the data back-up and recovery program. Our comprehensive HIPAA Compliance service uses proprietary Risk Score Matrix algorithm that prioritizes the work that should be done based upon potential impact to your practice. We not only provide you with a full set of HIPAA documentation required under the Security Rule, but also offer the ongoing expert IT services you need to resolve any HIPAA related IT issue we discover.
Our service leverages the accuracy and efficiency of specialized computer software, combined with the expert know how of our experienced IT support engineers and staff.
