Healthcare organizations are acutely aware of the many HIPAA and PCI regulations governing their industry. Compliance challenges include keeping medical and financial data accessible yet secure, and making the most of limited resources in the face of potentially expensive solutions. Leaders in the field recognize that evolving network technologies are necessary for ensuring and affording compliance. They must be proactive in their designs to ensure compliance, rather than being reactive after the fact. At Heritage Digital, we are proactive in ensuring our healthcare customers are HIPPA compliant. Let us help you with your healthcare organization today!
OUR EXPERIENCE WITH HEALTHCARE IT
Heritage Digital’s team brings over 25 years of experience in the healthcare industry, with team members serving in corporate organizations, and managing IT in local practices in the Pee Dee and Grand Strand regions of South Carolina. The Healthcare Industry IT is a complicated, highly regulated, and a prime target for cyber threats. Compliance requirements are increasingly one of the top burdens on the industry, though meeting these requirements allows for better protections, reduced risks, and a better work environment. In this industry, IT costs can be associated with two areas: 1) dependability of services for use by the healthcare providers and 2) integrity, confidentiality, and availability of patient information. Each of these areas have requirements in compliance resulting from the regulations and threats.
Our Business Continuity Plan includes a Disaster Recovery Plan which is a vital tool for meeting the regulatory and compliance requirements. This plan will help identify issues with the company IT Infrastructure and Security. Security Services are not limited to hardware appliances, software protections, and electronic locks. An often, overlooked weakness in defenses are the proper controls around data access. We assist in the education of the end-users on proper systems use, providing the latest information on cyber-threats and recommendations on how to prevent opening doors to your business data. We assist in setting up accounts based on user requirements, limiting access based on responsibility, formulating business policies around account creation, changes, and account deletion and the enforcement of these policies through system rules.
