Healthcare IT Services

What matters most to healthcare professionals including dentists, chiropractors and many others across the Baltimore/Washington, DC Metro Area?

It’s the ability to provide exceptional healthcare and dental services to their patients. But in an increasingly regulated industry, how does the average healthcare organization manage expenses while maintaining the highest patient-care standards? One easy way is by leveraging information technology to improve efficiencies and security.

Over the years, healthcare IT systems have allowed medical clinics, hospitals and healthcare organizations the ability to provide a better level of patient care. Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) have revolutionized the industry.  However, with these technology enhancements have come risks and compliance guidelines that must be met to secure patient information and maintain patient-care standards.

On January 17, 2013, The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) strengthened the privacy and security protections for health information established under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule, and HIPAA Enforcement Rule mandate that all healthcare providers, covered entities and business associates must meet HIPAA and HITECH compliance rules. The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules are focused on health care providers, health plans and other entities that process health insurance claims.  The final Omnibus Rule became effective on March 26, 2013. Covered Entities and Business Associates, regardless of size have 180 days beyond the effective date of the final rule to become compliant with most of the final rule’s provisions, including the modifications to the Breach Notification Rule and the changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
