Are you confident your organization could pass a random HIPAA compliance audit conducted by federal regulators? From security awareness training to PHI access management and device controls, being HIPAA compliant is vital for the health of your organization.
What is HIPAA Compliance & Why is it Important?
Whether internal or external, threats to the security of protected health information (PHI) continue to evolve. In response, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is becoming more complex, challenging hospitals, integrated delivery systems, physician groups, clinics, insurers, and other healthcare organizations to strengthen security postures to comply. HIPAA was created in 1996 in order to ensure the protection of sensitive patient information. Any organization that handles PHI must meet HIPAA security requirements. Failing to demonstrate compliance with HIPAA can result in fines, lawsuits, and damage to your reputation.
