Are Your Medical and Patient Records Protected in Compliance with HIPAA?

Can your organization ensure that your medical records and patient information are being protected? The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) requires anyone who handles medical information, such as healthcare providers and insurance companies, to secure Protected Health Information (PHI), exchange data electronically, and protect patient information. Risks of noncompliance can include fines as much as $1.5 million per violation.

Under HIPAA regulations, healthcare organizations must develop policies and procedures outlining how they will provide patients access to their records, document proper employee training, and detail when records should be disposed of.

What if you could implement a system that could help you make sure PHI is securely protected at all times? Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your PHI. Protect against unauthorized access during electronic transmission and at rest, by implementing an information management system.
