Security Solutions For Healthcare
As the national mandate for the sharing of patient information gathers strength in step with the growing number of regional health information network initiatives, effective patient privacy and security of patient data become even more urgent. It’s essential not only to implement an appropriate security program, but to safeguard your ability to protect and restore your information assets and ensure care continuity in the case of an adverse event.
We recognize that healthcare organizations require more than just a strong security solution. Protecting patient privacy while facilitating the access of assigned caregivers—particularly in emergency situations—and implementing effective, practical security solutions takes specific knowledge of the healthcare environment and comprehensive understanding of federal, state, and industry regulations.
At the same time, the government is looking closely at HIPAA violations and covered entities are starting to pay the price for violating the security rule. Providence Health & Services in Seattle is making a $100,000 resolution payment to the government and must spend countless more time and money implementing a corrective action plan to ensure their security program meets the letter of the law.
Is there a security audit in your future? Will your organization be able to stand up to the increased scrutiny and enforcement from CMS and the OIG?
