HIPAA COMPLIANCE

“Are you HIPAA compliant?” and “Can you prove that you were compliant 3 months ago?”

These are not just inquiries. They represent a critical challenge that Healthcare Organizations and Businesses must address. HIPAA or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a federal law designed to Safeguard Patient Data and ensure its Privacy and Security. 

Achieving HIPAA compliance involves adhering to a set of Privacy and Security Standards. It requires Healthcare Providers, Health Plans, Healthcare Clearinghouses, and their Business Associates to Safeguard Sensitive Patient Health Information. 

HIPAA compliance is not a ONE-TIME EFFORT. It’s an Ongoing Commitment. It means you should be ready to demonstrate your adherence to HIPAA requirements not just today but for any given point in the past.
