Compliance and Security — A Growing Need
Not only are the Healthcare Industry and its Business Associates under increasing pressure to develop their compliance and security capabilities and comply with Federal regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the FTC’s Fair Practices but also the value of health information has attracted more attention from those willing to exploit an organization’s vulnerabilities.
The transformation underway in the US Healthcare system from Fee For Service to Value-Based Care requires greater care coordination among all care team members, patients, family and caregivers, payers, and more. That Care Coordination relies on the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information from an ever increasing array of devices, Non Physician Providers, Allied Health professionals, Population Health informatics, and sources yet unknown.
The “debt” in Health IT compliance and security from years of neglect and working within protected silos with limited information sharing is coming due. HealthCare Too can help your organization with its compliance and security posture, preparing your organization to be an active and valued member of the Value-Based Care model.

2015 saw a record number of breaches and the outlook for 2016 is for more of the same. Additionally the HHS Office for Civil Rights has already set 2016 as its start for HIPAA audits and the FTC has already imposed fines for not using industry best practices around encryption for products. Now is the time to be proactive and demonstrate your organization’s commitment to compliance and security… not after a breach or fine.
