HIPAA & HITECH

Patients expect healthcare organizations to keep their personal health information confidential and safe from data breaches. Compliance with the detailed requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act regulations is mandatory and complex. Compliance is critical to secure each patient’s right to privacy, quality care, and safety.

Our IT and cybersecurity specialists provide comprehensive HIPAA & HITECH Services from independent assessment of compliance, risk, standards, and controls through the development of a prioritized corrective action plan (CAP).
