As technology evolves, healthcare organizations must allocate more resources to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations. HIPAA requires healthcare providers to safeguard patient information and maintain confidentiality. For healthcare organizations, this means they must work with IT companies that are knowledgeable about HIPAA and can help them maintain compliance. Here is how Computer Business ensures that your healthcare organization is HIPAA compliant.
HIPAA is a federal law that sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Healthcare providers must ensure that their electronic Protected Health Information (PHI) is secure and confidential. HIPAA compliance can be complex, and many healthcare organizations need help to maintain it independently. Computer Business can help your healthcare company maintain HIPAA compliance.
