HIPAA Compliance, Protect Patient Information and Privacy
As data breeches in the healthcare industry continue to mount, security is more important than ever. More ePHI means more risk and exposure for providers and their patients’ personal information. Protecting patient information is becoming increasingly more difficult as new, complex ways of hacking information becomes more abundant. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is in place to protect patient information and privacy.
Healthcare organizations trying to maintain compliance often find the process difficult to keep up with new regulations, time consuming, and expensive. Staying HIPAA compliant is not only important for the patient’s privacy, but also for the long-term success of the healthcare organization. As recent HIPAA-Related Security breaches show, any company found to be non-compliant can be charged with millions of dollars of fines if any patient information is leaked. Sedara offers a solution to help avoid electronic data breaches and comply with HIPAA and HITECH regulations giving you peace of mind.
Sedara’s Automated Approach to HIPAA Compliance
Sedara’s approach is all about making the compliance process easy to understand and track so each organization can focus on what is important – patient care. Our software offers a fast and easy setup solution. Once we install and deploy the software we can find errors and issues through a vulnerability assessment. From there, we can make adjustments to prevent them from happening again.
Continual monitoring of data is also among the most important features that Sedara offers. While there are continually new and more advanced attempts to hack information, Sedara ensures that through continual monitoring and advanced intrusion detection, you are always protected and aware of high risk issues right away. Our 24/7 monitoring and alert systems alongside our response ready planning ensures that if a data breach ever occurs, you will be ready to respond as quickly as possible. Studies show that the faster the response time to any attempted security threat greatly reduces the impact of the threat.
Once you are set up and maintaining your online HIPAA compliance requirements, healthcare organizations also need to be able to document and report on their compliance efforts for an audit. Preparing for a compliance audit can be a daunting task if you aren’t sure exactly what documentation you need to prove you are maintaining HIPAA Compliance. Our solution provides detailed and flexible reporting capabilities, ready to report on your compliance controls at any time. Schedule them to be delivered to you on a recurring basis, or run them at a click of a button. Start tracking your controls right from the time of installation!
