The importance of information security in healthcare
Ensuring our clients’ data is safe, secure, and adaptable in the accelerating digital working environment is one of our top priorities. As electronic patient data has been adopted extensively during this unprecedented time, we have accomplished the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to ensure the security of protected health information (PHI) and help maintain control of sensitive data throughout healthcare organizations.
What is the HIPAA Certification?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a US federal law that governs the privacy and security of Personal Health Information (PHI) in the US, which sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection.
By complying with HIPAA regulations and protecting PHI, health organizations can provide the best possible patient care while ensuring patients’ information privacy in all forms, including structured and unstructured data, emails, documents, and scans from anyone who has access to sensitive patient data.
Why is the HIPAA Certification Important?
With the accelerating adoption of electronic health records (EHR) and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems, both work efficiency and security risks are increasing in todays’ healthcare section.
Achieving HIPAA Compliance allows Process Fusion to protect the privacy of individuals’ health information and improve the quality and efficiency of patient care while healthcare organizations are adopting new technologies.
The greatest benefits of HIPAA are for patients. The HIPAA Privacy regulations empower Process Fusion to accelerate digital transformation in healthcare with the highest security standard, help healthcare providers focus on patient care and protect the patients’ privacy throughout the healthcare process.
