Healthcare IT & 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?
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.
