Managed HIPAA Services
HIPAA IT Compliance
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act exists to keep private healthcare information private. That’s it. So what’s the problem? It should be simple to [not] share protected health information? But it isn’t.
Who can we blame? Technology, yes - and unfortunately, we get to include ourselves when sharing violations occur. Every tool, technology, and process designed to [enable] intentional sharing between doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, and medical companies - can also be a liability. Users and administrators of these systems must understand how they work and how they fail. But the underlying technologies built to enable and limit sharing of information can be complex to understand.
This is HIPAA IT Compliance. We love compliance, right? We may hesitate to admit it but regulations, guides, and even penalties weed out the intentional bad actors and the unintentional but ignorant facilitators. Occasionally we may even need to be protected from ourselves because we don’t know what we don’t know.
Patient Care Is Your Business - Technology Is Ours
You understand patient care - this is your business. You understand and navigate that line between patient needs and services every day. Information technology, on the other hand, is not your business. Yet IT is a foundational component of your day-to-day operation. So how have you managed HIPAA Compliance? As a small to medium-sized business, you may have explored self-service IT or partnered with other IT contractors. But you are here because you know HIPAA Compliance isn’t the best space to learn as you go.
Similar to your ease of navigating the complexities of patient care and interconnected services - 911 IT navigates the complex landscape of tools, platforms, and services and how they all flow through the rules of HIPAA Compliance.
Benefits of Immediate HIPAA Compliance
We care about compliance because we care about people and privacy. Selfishly, we are protecting our own families, friends, and yes, ourselves.
