We offer our HIPAA Shield Services to help you stay compliant with HIPAA Regulations and avoid the penalties non-compliance might cause you.
For about two years, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has been conducting audits and levying fines against healthcare organizations that fail to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Acts (HIPAA). Besides the fine, non-compliance affecting more than 500 individuals is posted on the HHS 'Wall of Shame,' which is a website that shows the details of the non-compliant clinic and the type of breach.
What's HIPAA Compliance?
The HIPAA sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection. Healthcare facilities that deal with Protected Health Information (PHI) are expected to have physical, network, and process security measures put in place to ensure HIPAA compliance. Entities involved in this Act include anyone providing treatment, payment, and operations in healthcare, healthcare subcontractors, and organizations that have access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment, or operations.
Reliable HIPAA Shield Services
HTI offers services that'll help you understand the business risks associated with HIPAA, how your staff, processes, and technology match up to the HIPAA security rules requirements and how you can comply with the ACT. Our team of subject matter experts has the skills, know-how, and experience needed to provide you with consultancy and implementation services that'll help you achieve standard implementation.
To ensure as many people as possible don't fall victims, we educate the healthcare community and provide valuable HIPAA compliance tools. Our process starts with an initial full assessment to evaluate all potential risks. These risks can be whether you follow the right procedure in disposing of sensitive patient information, whether you store files at secured locations or whether you have proper patient record backup.
After this assessment, we'll work closely with you to put the appropriate safeguards in place. Our shield will ensure you not only pass unexpected HIPAA audits, but also operate a patient record system that would be hard to compromise.
