As a healthcare provider, your primary responsibility is to provide quality, confidential care to your patients. But in today’s technology-driven world, and with ever-increasing regulatory mandates, you need an efficient, reliable and secure IT system to do this. Network Heroes can help. We understand the complexities of Healthcare IT and the importance of complying with HIPAA/HITECH regulations.
To run your practice or organization, you and your staff must be able to securely store and retrieve patients’ PHI. Network Heroes ensures you can do this and still ensure compliance with HIPAA/HITECH. Our cloud computing solutions are more secure and stable then ever, with encryption capabilities and security settings that ensure PHI remains confidential at all times.
HIPAA requires risk analyses be conducted and specifies that the risk analysis process be ongoing. Healthcare organizations receiving EHR incentive payments without conducting a risk assessment will be held liable under the False Claims Act and must forfeit their payments. The OIG (Office of Inspector General) has made this a top priority, as is proceeding with investigations.
Failing To Conduct a Risk Analysis Can Result In:
- An increased risk of data breaches.
- OCR (The Office for Civil Rights) enforcement and monetary penalties.
- CMS (Centers for Medicare/Medicaid Services) enforcement to recoup EHR incentive payments.
- OIG enforcement under the False Claims Act, including liability of three times the EHR incentive payment and exclusion from all federally funded healthcare programs.
Network Heroes Can Conduct Risk Analyses to Ensure Your Compliance.
Our risk analysis identifies PHI-containing systems, assesses vulnerabilities, and prioritizes the risk on those systems. We also help you develop solutions to safeguard your IT and PHI.
Don’t gamble with your ability to comply with these regulations, or the survival of your healthcare business. For more information about a HIPAA Risk Analysis or our Healthcare IT Services, call Network Heroes at (702) 252- 4376 or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
