The Risks

  • Concerned your IT system does not measure up to HIPAA standards?

  • Worried your practice might be investigated and fined?

  • Are employees putting you at risk due to ignorance of HIPAA regulations?

  • Do you fear an ePHI breach and the requirements to mitigate such an occurrence?

HIPAA Compliance is more important than ever…

We understand that medical professionals face very real challenges when it comes to HIPAA compliance. The expanding amount of patient health information stored and transmitted electronically (ePHI) leaves your practice vulnerable to major security breaches and regulatory actions. Lack of proper employee training due to high staff turnover, and laxity in maintaining updated HIPAA certifications is equally dangerous.

Since HIPAA’s inception in 1996, the federal government has encouraged healthcare organizations to implement voluntary compliance plans. With the subsequent passage of the HITECH Act, the Affordable Care Act and the Omnibus Final Rule in 2013, healthcare practices became obligated to implement strict compliance programs. Enforcement by the Office for Civil Rights and the Attorneys General of most states continues to expand, as an increasing number of breaches are reported. To simply “continue doing what you’ve been doing” is not a prudent choice. In fact, it's no longer legal.
