Healthcare Industry Information Security
HIPAA is complicated and the cost of non-compliance is severe. Penalties range from $100 to $50,000 or more per violation with a calendar year cap of $1,500,000 while criminal penalties can carry a sentence of up to 10 years of imprisonment. Here are just some of the things you must be doing in order to remain compliant with HIPAA regulations.
Beyond the Privacy Notice you are required to give patients, HIPAA requires a complete written policy regarding your security program and privacy program.
HIPAA requires each business to properly mitigate risks to data loss and document those efforts while updating the ongoing Risk Analysis to show the effect of the mitigation efforts.
HIPAA requires ongoing testing of the effectiveness of your HIPAA compliance program. These tests should cover all aspects and be well documented.

All The Right Things
With all of it’s requirements, HIPAA understands that smaller organizations may not have the resources to secure their data to the same degree a large organization can. Some of the requirements allow for that and we can help build a plan that meets the requirements relative to your size and budget. While we work with you, we will help you make the right decisions to remain in compliance and more importantly make sure the patients in your care are safe.
