The protection of patient privacy is a major concern for any practitioner. Managing your HIPAA compliance and maintaining the level of security mandated by the federal government is a job in and of itself. One wrong step could cost your practice tremendously in the form of punitive fines, increased insurance premiums, and most troubling- time away from your patients. Even if you have a plan in place to maintain your practice’s compliance, will your plan withstand the growing privacy standards? Will your plan satisfy an auditor?
2015 marked a dramatic change in federal standards. Managing these changes to ensure your compliance has become more difficult than ever. Privacy laws will only become more complex as time goes forward. Can your practice keep up with the ever increasing federal mandates? Make no mistake; non-compliance is a very real possibility for your practice.
- Over 93 million records have been breached in the first half of 2015 alone.
- Fines have been issued as high as $750,000 for a small practice with only 13 physicians.
So how can you possibly manage the new privacy standards, without taking time away from the thing that matters most-caring for your patients?
