Is your Organization HIPAA Compliant?
Becoming HIPAA compliant is a complex & time-consuming process. WE CAN HELP.
Who Is Required To Be HIPAA Compliant?
To improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system, Congress mandated the establishment of a set of national standards for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information, often referred to as “ePHI”.
These comprehensive security controls are enforced by the Office of Civil Rights, and apply to organizations, including, but not limited to:
Healthcare providers, (e.g. Doctors, Dentists, Nursing Homes, Clinics, Pharmacies) who transmit any information in an electronic form in connection with a transaction
Health insurance companies, who provide HMOs, company health plans, and other government programs that pay for health care, including Medicare, Medicaid or military/veteran-specific plans
Healthcare clearing houses, which includes those organizations and entities that process nonstandard health information which they receive from another entity.
One of the biggest threats to your organization or practice today is your HIPAA compliancy – or the LACK of it. Federal HIPAA requirements are incredibly confusing, and the penalties for not being compliant can be debilitating.
With that in mind, CUCIT Solutions assembled a new HIPAA Compliancy Checklist for organizations to use to help you start to double-check your compliancy.
