Patient data deserves the same care that your healthcare organization gives to each person that walks through your door. GSWS is committed to providing healthcare organizations with services to stay HIPAA compliant.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed. Initially passed in 1996, updated by a law called HITECH in 2009 and in 2013, (under the larger “Omnibus” rule) rolled the requirements of all 3 legislation into 1 act. For the sake of sanity, HIPAA, HITECH, and the Omnibus Rule all refer to the same concept: the HIPAA regulations.
If your business has experienced major changes, such as new hires or changes in technology, GSWS can help you with a HIPAA reference manual that includes all information that an auditor will be looking for.
Receive a thorough review of your documented HIPAA policies and procedures to determine what’s missing and recommendations of best security practices to keep you compliant. Our expertise in healthcare data security keeps businesses within HIPAA and HITECH security requirements.
