Are you compliant?

HIPAA Privacy Rules

     Employees in your office have the most crucial role, to keep your office compliant with HIPAA privacy rules. This includes physically keeping patient files secure, as well as digital files.

HIPAA Security Rules

     The HIPAA security rule applies to electronic patient records, and keeping them safe with external or internal storage and during transit. Electronic patient records are typically stored on computer hard drives, disks, digital memory data, and networks. All of these methods of storage must remain HIPAA compliant at all times.

     There are penalties for accidentally or knowingly releasing patient records. This could lead to fines, termination of employment, office closures, and even jail time. Therefore, it’s very important for each employee if your office to fully understand the HIPAA rules & regulations.
