Ensure Compliance and Prevent Costly Fines
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) legislated numerous data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. However, it wasn't until the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was officially signed into law on February 17, 2009 that many businesses began to take HIPAA seriously. With the passing of the HITECH act, you can no longer claim lack of knowledge or lack of expertise as a defense for non-compliance with HIPAA. All organizations that touch health-related patient data must comply with every aspect of HIPAA, or face heavy fines. Even a legal firm which scans a single copy of a client's x-rays for use in court can be found liable for thousands of dollars in damages if they aren't fully HIPAA compliant! HIPAA compliance is a serious concern for any patient-focused business, and lack of compliance puts many businesses around the country out of business every day. If you touch patient records or health related data in any way, shape, or form, please give us a call immediately. Let us help you meet and maintain compliance before the government does.
We can provide audits against ISO/IEC 27000 standards, HIPAA, and HITECH.

In addition to our compliance auditing services, we provide as-needed independent audits for investigative purposes.
