Compliance Services Designed for Your Organization
Compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act is mandatory, and noncompliance can quickly escalate to penalties that can impact your organization. These penalties can come in many forms, including loss of business due to the erosion of trust from patients, employees, vendors and other alliances.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) announced a final rule that implemented a number of provisions of the HITECH Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The intent of these provisions is to strengthen the privacy and security protections for health information established under HIPAA.
