If healthcare is your business, personal health information security should be top of mind. Patient privacy and patient data protection is critical. It’s the law. HIPAA Compliance creates a secure organizational environment to protect patient data.
We are a full service HIPAA Compliance Assessor and Advisory company helping entities by providing patient data security assessment services with 10 years of experience.
If you are a covered entity (health plans, health care clearinghouses, health care providers); provide treatment, payment, or operations in healthcare; have access to patient information; provide support in treatment or payment; are a business associate; or a subcontractor, then you must be in compliance with HIPAA at all times.
Failure to comply with HIPAA regulations can result in criminal charges or hefty fines, regardless of whether the violation resulted from willful neglect or intention. Even inadvertent violations are not considered justifiable by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the Department of Health and Human Services. Penalties for noncompliance are based on the level of negligence and may be up to $50,000 per violation, with a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year. This is in addition to other consequences enforced by applicable laws, litigations and regulatory penalties.
RSI Security can evaluate your organization’s patient data related processes, controls, and policies and identify any potential gaps between the practices and HIPAA requirements and advise corrective actions to be taken prior to an OCR audit or compliance review.
