Healthcare IT Consulting & HIPAA Compliance

We’re just what the doctor ordered.  No seriously, we are.  

Your medical office is busy…very busy.  Nurses, doctors, administration and many business associates are in and out of the office all day long.  

There’s enough to worry about without having to worry about your technology.  Think about it.  Is your

  • Network Secure?
  • Storage Encrypted?
  • Password Policy Strong Enough?
  • Software and Operating System Up to Date?
  • Data Backed Up?
  • Email Secure?
  • Staff Educated on Social Engineering and Compliance?

These are just some of the IT questions you need to have answered.  Wouldn’t it make sense to have a 24/7 IT support team to take care of these things for you?

Healthcare IT Consulting is SERIOUS Business.  

We Are a HIPAA Compliant Managed IT Service Provider

Is your healthcare business protected?  If not you might be subjected to heavy fines, loss of license and/or prison.

What many healthcare businesses don’t understand or believe is that this applies to their practice as well.  HIPAA, HITECH and overall IT Compliance is not just for medical doctors.

Dentists, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, and many other healthcare providers need to be HIPAA compliant.

And so do many of their business associates.

The Cost of a Breach in Healthcare

The average cost for a breach in healthcare is $408 per record.  That means if you have 10,000 records you’re on the hook for $4,080,000.  The average cost for a healthcare practice to have a HIPAA compliant IT Business Associate available 24/7 is between $3000-5000/month.  

Let’s put money aside for a minute.  The fact is HIPAA compliance is about your patients.  If you’re in Healthcare then you are in customer service.  HIPAA serves to protect your patients and as a healthcare practice that should be your highest priority.

The HIPAA/HITECH Problem

Only 1 in 16 medical offices are 100% HIPAA compliant.  

38% of all breaches are the direct result of malware.

Fines can easily reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, even for violations uncovered during an audit.

HIPAA violations can also result in loss of license, business closure and jail time.

Business Associates are also required to be HIPAA compliant, from accountants to IT.  

Through July 2017 nearly 175,000,000 people have been affected by HIPAA breaches.

Approximately 120,000,000 are the result of hacking while a little more than 30,000,000 are the result of employees/business associates.

Hackers and Ransomware Attackers are not only targeting large hospitals and healthcare practices.  They’re targeting YOU!

A recent ransomware attack on a Michigan Medical Practice resulted in the practice closing it’s doors for good. 

Another attack on an Ohio Urologist resulted in a $75,000 ransom being paid.

These are HIPAA violations.  That means you’re not only on the hook for the ransom but will likely be fined for HIPAA violations.

Your practice cannot afford to ignore the risk.  You need qualified, experienced and professional healthcare IT consulting.  It’s your business to take care of your patients.  It’s our business to take care of your practice.

HIPAA and HITECH Compliance

Healthcare IT  Consulting is not Optional

Computers, Servers and the Cloud are a necessary part of any healthcare practice today.  You’ve undoubtedly needed the services of an IT consultant at one time or another.

Not having the RIGHT Healthcare IT support can cost you more than the bill from the IT consultant.

Your Healthcare IT consultant needs to be a HIPAA compliant Business Associate with a signed BAA.  They should also be a part of your HIPAA compliance program.

At Nwaj Tech we are a HIPAA Compliant Healthcare IT consultant with the knowledge and resources to protect your medical office.  Don’t just hire a computer repair company to support your healthcare practice.  Make sure you’re consulting an expert Healthcare IT service provider.  Your practice depends on it.
