The healthcare regulatory environment is constantly changing, making it even harder to keep up with all the shifts in healthcare regulations. It is very crucial to partner with a team of healthcare IT experts that have seen it all and know-how and when to tweak your approach to stay in compliance. Microwise is here to help you implement necessary changes to comply with HIPAA regulations and other requirements.
Regulatory Compliance During COVID-19
As COVID-19 changed the world around us and forced people to stay at and work from home, practices also needed to adapt and help patients from home to follow the social distancing guidelines while also complying with government regulations.
HIPAA & HITECH Compliance
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violations could be quite costly, with some penalties under the HITECH ACT of 2009 reaching $1 million in fines. Not complying with the regulations will put your practice at risk of potential lawsuits, penalties, and financial liability. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act forces harsher and more complicated data security requirements for health care organizations and their associates.
As a physician, you are bound to technology to be able to comply with regulations, regardless of the size of your practice.
