Our team has worked with medical and health care related clients for over a decade. We understand the focus must remain on patient care, privacy, and efficiency, and how technology plays a critical role in that complex equation.
Healthcare firms of all sizes are migrating to the cloud, but often need guidance on choosing the right solutions to maximize productivity while reducing costs. In addition, medical firms need help to meet HIPAA and HITECH security requirements to ensure they are protecting patient data.
Healthcare organizations that are choosing a managed IT services provider need to ensure the provider can meet the requirements and act in accordance with the HIPAA and HITECH regulations — it’s mandated by the law. MSPs that access or manage systems that contain PHI stored by a HIPAA-covered entity (CE) must do so under a proper Business Associate Agreement (BAA) and must meet the same security and training requirements of the CE.
We take a comprehensive approach to managing the IT for health care firms, from proactively securing your network to providing secure cloud-based desktops that meet stringent performance and security requirements. We also work to ensure we have the proper Business Associate Agreements in place and that all of our team members take HIPAA-related security awareness and PHI/PII training.
We know that small and mid-sized health care organizations often do not have the resources to meet modern IT needs while achieving or maintaining regulatory compliance. We’ve assembled some key offerings to help your health care organization to meet these challenges.
Small to medium sized health care and medical practices are the ever-increasing focus for HIPAA audits with single-incident fines ranging from $1,000 to $50,000 to upwards of $1.5 million depending on the scope of the breach involved.
Our mPOWER HIPAA Readiness Program prepares and verifies that your organization can meet the requirements of the HIPAA and HITECH guidelines.
We approach HIPAA verification from a policy, technical, and training standpoint to ensure your administration, staff, vendors, and IT systems all work in tandem to support that goal.
