HIPAA Compliance

Credit card accounts can be cancelled and new ones opened in minutes.
Your medical record lasts your whole life.
That’s valuable to identity thieves.

As more and more medical records go online every day, health data is being distributed on more information systems and available to more portable devices than ever before. While EHR systems are helping to improve patient care outcomes, medical identity thieves and computer hackers have been taking advantage of vulnerabilities. To make matters worse, business associates are involved with the majority of breached PHI records. The Department of Health & Human Services Office of Civil Rights is required to investigate all breaches of PHI and that means they will ask about your HIPAA Compliance.

Q: What does this mean for me?
A: Your risk of a data breach is increasing and so are the potential costs.

OCR has gotten serious about HIPAA enforcement with more resolution agreements issued and “resolution payments” collected in 2016, than in all the prior seven years combined. OCR’s latest round of audits is also still ongoing. The challenge is how to properly protect patient privacy and secure Protected Health Information (PHI) so you can minimize your risk of breaches and regulatory fines.
