The Importance of Compliance and Information Risk Management
As we all know, health care is undergoing a period of dramatic transformation. As part of this change, hospitals and health systems must fully understand how HIPAA and meaningful use regulations affect their organization. They also must know how to identify compliance cares and determine what their information risks are. This information empowers them to make better and more informed decisions to manage risk. Whether a health care organization is responsible for data breach or business associate is the health care organization could face significant non-compliance penalties, plus a breach and damaged reputation or even worse… lose the trust of its patients.
Hospitals must take the necessary steps to ensure they are doing everything they can to protect confidential PHI while ensuring it is accurate and available to caretakers. That’s essential for patients’ safety and clinical quality. To do so, they need the tools and methodologies for creating and using effective HIPAA-HITECH compliance and information risk management programs.
Here at the AHA, we are dedicated to helping hospitals understand and manage the risks associated with PHI breaches and other sensitive patient information. Our members need effective and comprehensive information risk management programs to comply with HIPAA-HITECH and with the AHA endorsed solutions from Clearwater Compliance they’ll have just that!
