Every clinic, medical practice, nursing home, pharmacy, and healthcare provider must adhere to the rules of HIPAA compliance when they have a website that transfers medical information. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 instituted laws defining the level of security necessary for protected health information transferred over the web.
Failing to abide by and remain HIPAA compliant could lead to substantial fines for the government. Even worse, you will lose the trust of your patients and possibly tarnish your reputation. Patients want to feel like they can trust their health to physicians and caregivers. They want to feel confident that their health information is protected and in good hands.
We can help:
- Implement rules and safeguards to protect patient health information.
- Limit sharing of confidential data to authorized stakeholders who directly help patients in some way.
- Ensure any business associates or corporate partners also safeguard PHI and share information only when done in each patient's best interests.
- Limit who can access PHI and train employees about security and confidentiality best practices.
