Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) compliance is a complex — but necessary — process for healthcare businesses in the United States, including those in New Jersey. It protects all patient health data from being disclosed without their consent or knowledge. For most large facilities such as hospitals and chain clinics with huge resources and IT infrastructures, achieving HIPAA compliance is easy because they can take advantage of corporate-grade compliance solutions. These solutions make financial sense for their large scale of operations and breadth of clientele.
Smaller healthcare businesses cannot typically afford the same solutions, so they tend to turn to piecemeal solutions derived from existing business platforms such as spreadsheets. And when it comes to cybersecurity, they tend to rely on input and transmission procedures that are tedious and can be prone to errors.
Fortunately, your small- or mid-sized business (SMB) in the healthcare industry can now opt for The Guard HIPAA compliance, which will allow you to meet all HIPAA compliance standards without hurting your budgets.
