Penalties For Noncompliance

Healthcare providers handle large amounts of confidential patient information; HIPAA requires this data is kept secure and private at all times. To enforce HIPAA compliance, the Office of Civil Rights regularly conducts periodic audits of businesses. Penalties for non-compliance can result in substantial fines and even criminal prosecution. There’s no stated minimum for fines for non-compliance and some have amounted to more than 1.5 million dollars!

How To Ensure Your Business is HIPAA Compliant

The first step is to have an expert conduct a HIPAA Risk Analysis for your business. In addition to helping ensure your compliance, this analysis is also a government requirement to access funds under the Meaningful Use Stage 2 Medicaid and Medicare programs.

A HIPAA Risk Analysis answers questions such as:

  • Is my business compliant with HIPAA, HITECH and HIPAA Omnibus Laws?
  • Are we prepared for a HIPAA/HITECH Audit by the U.S. Health and Human Services or my State Attorney General?
  • How does my business maintain our compliance posture?
  • Are we secure against Cyber-Attacks?

In addition to answering these questions, Infinity Technologies’ HIPAA Risk Analysis Service will inform you about other important laws and issues such as:

  • The Whistle Blower Law
  • The Breach Notification Law
  • Compliance and Security of External Vendors
  • Various costs of compliance solutions
