HIPAA Risk Assessment/Meaningful Use Security Auditing

Security/HIPAA

More than almost any other business, Health Care Organizations need to make sure they are doing everything they can to ensure the security of their networks. From a strong line of defense against outside attacks using firewalls and intrusion detection systems, to the latest and most effective antivirus systems. At Las Vegas Med I.T. we have experience with the special needs of healthcare and we can help you make sure your network is as secure as possible.

Starting September 23rd, 2013, the new/updated HIPAA Rules went into effect. Practices and their Business Associates must have a HIPAA Risk Assessment completed and a. I.T. Policy and Procedures Manual developed and in place. Let Las Vegas Med I.T assist your organization with a Risk Assessment and Manual Development. Our consultants can help protect you from the stiff penalties that can be assessed for non-compliance or “Willful Neglect”.

Additionally, practices that have attested for Meaningful Use of an EHR must have a Meaningful Use Security Assessment before the attestation.

Let Las Vegas Med I.T. conduct an assessment and assist with any remediation required to avoid potential penalties.
