Information about HIPAA Audit
What is HIPAA Audit?
Preparing for your HIPAA Audit in Florida need not frustrate you; we, InfoSight Inc., are ready to serve you outstandingly, and ensure that you do not face any regulatory risks and fines! HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets out the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Entities handling protected health information (PHI) must ensure that the required physical, network, and process security measures are firmly in place, and followed. Trust us to remediate your vulnerabilities, and accurately guide you, on the implementation of safeguards, to minimize, if not entirely avoid PHI risk.
HIPAA Compliance changes are regular, as are regulatory risks; real risks are significant, and growing rapidly as the movement to Cloud and Mobile devices gathers momentum. For those reasons, the HIPAA Audit in Florida is growing in importance. The HIPAA Security Rule emerged in 2003. In 2009, Health and Human Services (HHS) added “business associate” to entities that must comply with HIPAA Act of 1996. In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) became law, and also the HITECH Act, which includes breach notification requirements, for all covered entities by HIPAA.
