Your Compliance Solution

Staying compliant can feel like a never-ending battle. Each year it seems like a new rule is released and security holes need to be addressed. Putting together an in-house compliance program can be a daunting task. If you do not have an adequate compliance program built into place, your organization could be vulnerable to major breaches and serious fines. What can you do to prevent these issues? 

Healthcare Compliance Pros has been able to help clients resolve audits, recoup pre-payment and post-payment audit money, and prevent significant losses. To date, we have not any SRAs fail an audit nor have we have had any breaches result in any fees and have been successful at helping our clients to pass audits 100% of the time! 

Here are the six most common compliance issues that you may not be aware you are facing:

  • Difficulty understanding new laws
  • Inadequate implementation of an effective compliance program
  • Partner compliance
  • BYOD and Telecommunication 
  • Poor data loss prevention (DLP)
  • Lack of valid data encryption 

Compliance programs are aimed at eliminating the time-consuming and distracting regulatory and legal processes that accompany ethical failures. HIPAA violations will cost your practice money. The Federal fines for noncompliance are based on the level of perceived negligence found within the company at the time of the violation. 

HIPAA fines can range from $100 to $50,000 per violation (or per record) with a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year for each violation. In 2017 alone over$17 million has been issued in fines related to HIPAA violations. 

Our webinar focused on important actions you need to take to safeguard your practice from serious breaches and ensure you are doing everything that is required to remain compliant and avoid expensive fines!
