Healthcare is a unique industry because as a business, you are always striving to be more efficient and productive so you can see more patients and respond to them quicker. Yet, you have the responsibility of protecting your patients’ Protected Health Information (PHI) and the burden of HIPAA regulations that may appear to contradict being productive.
We’ve worked in the healthcare industry for over 15 years, and we have seen the speed of the industry drastically increase with the rise of patient management software, mobile devices, and remote access. Although your office hours may not have increased, your exposure has with email, texts, and patient portals. With this increased availability, you add additional risk for a breach.
We are experts in finding that perfect balance of productivity and security for your medical practice, and we’re more than well-versed in HIPAA’s compliance requirements. In fact, we were one of the first IT firms in the New Orleans area to require BAAs with our medical clients. We understand the pressures you are under, and we have the tools and experience needed to help your practice.
Let My IT guide you on what you need to do to become HIPAA compliant with your ePHI and how to comply with your Meaningful Use tax credit obligations. If you are unsure if you’re compliant or if your data is really safe, we need to talk immediately because both a breach and a fine from OCR (Office of Civil Rights) are costly. Contact My IT today to rest at ease that your data is safe and compliant.
