HIPAA / HITECH Compliance Support for Healthcare Organizations

Healthcare providers, payers, clearinghouses and others must comply with government regulations like the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). With the passing of the HITECH Act and subsequent clarifications, not only has enforcement for violations of both acts been strengthened and solidified, incentives have been put in place for the adoption of secure electronic health records that promote treatment efficacy and cost reduction, while protecting personal health information (PHI).
