IT Support Every Physician Wants

Compliance is no laughing matter, and using our HIPAA compliance services will help ensure your business remains fully compliant at all times and is a great step toward staying out of the hot spotlight of OCR audits, avoid paying hefty fines and maintaining your reputation.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) compliance is designed to protect the privacy of patients and create a set of standards around the sharing and safeguarding of medical records. What many do not realize is that the responsibility of HIPAA compliance does not rest entirely within the healthcare industry. On the contrary, nearly anyone who is dealing with electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) are required to be HIPPA compliant. This includes not only physicians, but hospital technicians, technology consultants, lawyers, accountants, and many other professionals.
What does that mean for YOU?
HIPAA Compliance Obligations
In order to comply with the HIPAA security rule, your organization and your business associates must have policies and procedures that address three distinct categories:
Physical safeguards – This is the act of physically protecting your facility and servers by locking doors, using electronic badges, or controlling access to ePHI based on job function.
Administrative safeguards – These safeguards deal with training staff, documentation, signing Business Associate Agreements with your partners, and annual review of changes.
Technical safeguards – These safeguards address the technical aspects of your environment and include policies such as automatic logoff on computers, regular patching and updating of systems, encryption of data at rest and in motion, and comprehensive backup and disaster recovery plans.
