HIPAA

No business is safe from cyber attacks. Physicians can benefit from both performing due diligence and purchasing insurance to mitigate the risk of loss.

This 60-second video clip will help your medical practice identify six ways to reduce the likelihood of a HIPAA breach due to cyber crime.

Even if your practice does not suffer a HIPAA breach of confidential patient data, being noncompliant can land you in hot water as well.

There are not always clear answers under HIPAA, particularly when it comes to mental health issues. Here is some guidance.

Medical providers need to be wary of vendors who sell compliance products. All companies who espouse compliance are not necessarily compliant.

Anyone involved with protected health information at your medical practice can be the one who gets you fined for a HIPAA violation. So due diligence is a must.

A HIPAA risk assessment can help your practice put safeguards in place to protect against both cyberthreats and cyberliability.
