The Healthcare industry definitely has its unique needs in terms of IT and Security. Even though HIPAA Compliance been a reality for years and all of the major Hospitals and Clinics are working hard to stay compliant, there are many smaller medical practices and healthcare providers who are not aware of the rising risk of being not HIPAA compliant. For example, medical practices are by law not allowed to hire IT Services who are not HIPAA Compliant. If your IT company tells you that they are HIPAA compliant, check to see if you have a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement in place with them. Your IT consultants must be completely proficient in all of the HIPAA Security regulations and the level of security that your practice needs to have in place in order to avoid hefty fines. They need to be able to conduct the mandatory HIPAA Risk Analysis for your practice on a regular basis to eliminate any possible violation. A good IT service provider should be able to help your practice to utilize the latest technology to increase efficiency and patient satisfaction while maintaining compliance with HIPAA regulations.
