Managing patient data and keeping it safe and secure is of most importance in healthcare. Today any health care industry saves their patient data in their computer and electronic devices. This needs supreme protection to maintain secrecy of data and avoid data theft. With such a huge level of Protected Health Information, HIPAA Security has become a necessity for the healthcare industry.
Here are the advantages of using HIPAA security for your IT Services;
Protects crucial data
The prime reason to use HIPPA is to ensure that the critical and highly confidential patient data is safe and secure with you. Because of the cost effectiveness, healthcare industry is heavily dependent on IT and networking to save all their data. However, is IT and Networking completely safe for confidential information? That’s what you need to ask yourself, when you hire a network service provider which is HIPAA compliant.
Keeps your operating system up to date
We recommend keeping your operating system up to date so that you have the latest security software and updates. According to HIPAA law, no outdated software is HIPAA compliant. This ensures that your systems are always protected by the latest data safety patches.
Provides secure password access
Since HIPAA does not support any outdated operating system including Windows XP, getting the latest secure password system for your data protection is a must. Crucial Protected Health Information often gets leaked and stolen for the lack of secured password. HIPAA security will provide complete protection for your intellectual property.
Regular HIPAA Security audit
Regular HIPAA audits will ensure a smooth running of the systems and maintain the high cyber security that your healthcare industry should have.
Your HIPAA compliant network service provider should provide complete support and service to all the IT related problems. After a successful annual audit, they should provide a certificate which can be displayed to your patients.
