Civil penalties for HIPAA violations are reaching into the millions - and those dollars can be better spent improving health outcomes. Violations and fines associated with PHI breach can also damage long-established public trust and may even lead to jail time. That's why maintaining a secure, compliant health data environment is so important.
To help covered entities such as providers and business associates meet this challenge, Konica Minolta's Healthcare platform includes consulting services that can drive an effective HIPAA compliance program, mitigate potentially damaging breaches and ensure that patient confidentiality is protected -- all without adding extra personnel to your payroll.
HIPAA, HITECH Breach Notification and HITECH Meaningful Use require health organizations to conduct or review their security risk analysis, implement security updates as necessary and identify security deficiencies. A thorough risk analysis includes data collection on document workflow; indentification of potential risks and threats; assessment of current security measures; determination of the likelihood of security threats; determintaion of the level of risk; final documentation of risk assessment. Through our partnership with ecfirst, Home of the HIPAA Academy, we offer a full review of your privacy and security protocols to ensure compliance with the strict demands of HIPAA regulations.
