HIPAA Security Assessments for Austin & the US

IT Services that Align with HIPAA Requirements

Health Care Provider IT Requirements

As technology keeps advancing, it becomes more and more integrated into our everyday lives. Similarly, technology is being heavily integrated into the health care industry. This allows health care providers to better treat their patients because patients’ files are more complete and easily accessible by doctors and other health care professionals.

With that said, there are many regulations in place to protect the privacy of those patients due to the rise of the digital age, and Contigo Technology is here to facilitate that. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996(HIPAA) Security Rule requires the appropriate physical, administrative and technical safeguards that ensure the security, confidentiality and integrity of electronically protected health information (PHI). Through our HIPAA compliance services in Austin, we strive to align your IT sources with the HIPAA Security Rule that protects you and your personal information.

The Importance of HIPAA Compliance

Modern technology opens new opportunities for healthcare providers to improve patient care and increase operational efficiency. Your practice can use IT resources to keep accurate patient records and share data between team members instantaneously. While IT tools offer advantages, it is important to implement them with respect to patient privacy and security. The HIPAA security rule is in place to protect patients, and compliance is crucial for numerous reasons.

The first reason that compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule is important is because it protects the patients. Securing PHI is a top concern because it preserves patient confidentiality. HIPAA compliance also safeguards against cybersecurity hazards that could compromise a patient’s personally identifiable information or financial information.

HIPAA Security Rule compliance is also important because it protects your business and staff. There are significant fees for individuals and organizations that violate HIPAA Security Rule requirements. Establishing compliant IT infrastructure can save your business and employees tens of thousands of dollars.

Finally, HIPAA Security Rule compliance boosts patient trust and satisfaction. When your organization meets its HIPAA requirements, patients trust you with their information. They will recognize your diligence and be more likely to choose your practice, securing revenue now and in the future. They will also be open and honest about their ailments, enhancing your ability to treat them and improving their outcomes.
