Data security and privacy solutions for health care organizations

Protecting patient health information

Compliance with the detailed requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations is a challenging and time‑consuming task. Yet, failure to adequately safeguard protected health information could lead to significant fines, adjustment to health service payments and civil monetary penalties. These repercussions can total hundreds of thousands and even millions of dollars. The potential financial losses, as well as significant trust and reputational damage with patient and industry communities, underscore the critical importance of compliance with HIPAA.
