In today’s data-centric environment, protecting your patient’s confidential health records is essential. Having full HIPAA compliance is not only required by law, but is designed to ensure that your clinic or practice operates according to established best practices.
How HIPAA Compliance Protects You
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is designed to ensure proper procedures are followed by health care industry organizations who are entrusted with patient medical records. Whether this data is paper-based or electronic, practitioners are bound to law to ensure the confidentiality of this information.
These specifications ensure that you take measures to not only protect your data but also protect your practice from liability. They include:
- Having data backup plans
- Implementing proper password security
- Implementing anti-malware protection
- Enacting proper facility access controls/physical security
Unfortunately, obtaining HIPAA security compliance can be a major headache for health industry organizations. Regulatory hurdles abound during the process, and it can be tough to navigate the waters toward becoming fully accredited.
For that reason, partnering with a technology firm that already operates with full HIPAA certification makes sense. True North has years of experience working with clinics and hospitals, providing secure cloud computing services and solutions to those with vital data to protect.
