HEALTHCARE
Everyone in healthcare knows about the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), but HIPAA isn’t the only regulation that health providers deal with on a daily basis.  Let us work with your business to develop a comprehensive solution to meet your needs.

Security in healthcare is paramount.  IT services to protect patient privacy and assure HIPAA compliance is a most.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law in 1996. It has gained notoriety for establishing regulatory standards around patient data security and privacy. Just recently, however, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Civil Rights (OCR) significantly has ramped its HIPAA audit program, with an increased focus on risk assessments.

Penalties for HIPAA Violations

Secured Cloud services  for healthcare

HIPAA and HITECH mandate strict privacy controls on protected health information (PHI) and the penalties for the loss of PHI can be severe. In one of the largest HIPAA enforcement actions by the US government to date, New York Presbyterian Hospital and Columbia University were recently fined $4.8 million by the US Departments of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) for mistakenly sharing patient data online. Following similar enforcement actions against QCA Health Plan ($250,000) for the theft of unencrypted health information, the OCR stated, “Our message to these organizations is simple: encryption is your best defense against these incidents.” While significant, fines can be dwarfed by consumer lawsuits and loss of business.

  • The Federal HITECH Act requires Covered Entities to implement EMR.
  • HIPAA mandates tied to potential fines make patient privacy non-negotiable.
