HIPAA/HITECH:
Privacy Compliance Made Simple

The HITECH act significantly strengthened HIPAA and has healthcare providers and insurers more concerned than ever about online patient privacy. HiSoftware’s compliance and information security solutions help protect against healthcare privacy breaches.

Much of the coverage of The Health Insurance Portability and Accounting Act (HIPAA) has centered on the regulatory requirements it places on the healthcare industry. However, the Act is designed to safeguard Protected Health Information (PHI) while also allowing for the electronic flow of data needed to provide and promote high-quality care.

Balancing these two requirements can be tricky. Not complying with these guidelines can result in lawsuits, substantial fines from the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and cause irreparable damage to your company’s reputation.
