Ensure HIPAA Compliance with Advanced and Automated Solutions For many private, public, and Government organizations dealing in health-care, protecting and securing medical information is a key concern. HIPAA compliance requires you to carry out such a risk analysis that must be specific to your practice. This is important as it’s the only reasonable way to assess your risk of security breaches in your current systems and protocols. With a growing reliance on information technology in the Healthcare Industry and the adoption of electronic medical records (EMR), it is crucial to ensure the safe handling of sensitive data. The passage of the HITECH Act (part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009) has increased the criminal penalties associated with HIPAA, not only for covered entities but for individual employees of covered entities and business associates also. This renewed focus on HIPAA makes it even more important for healthcare organizations to ensure appropriate controls and safeguards are implemented, to prevent unauthorized access and disclosure of sensitive patient data. Effective healthcare compliance can help organization spot errors in its processes, and prevent small problems before they become large ones. HIPPA Compliance can be convoluted and at times expensive. The key to HIPAA compliance is commitment to staying current with the rules and regulations, and achieving staff acceptance of the importance of complete compliance. A collaborative partnership with a company that specializes in release of information can reduce your organization's incidence of HIPAA violations and enable your healthcare team to focus their energies on providing excellent care to their patients. Meeting HIPAA security compliance requirements begins with a security management solution, one that enables real-time monitoring, compliance reporting and control management. The best route to compliance is the integration of existing people, processes, and policies with technology. HIPAA compliance is more important than ever.
