1 in 4 Providers Not Covered

Improving Patient Outcomes through Technology
June 14th, 2018
Do your patients trust you?
 
Collecting and sharing medical records?  Security concerns are plaguing the health care industry. 
 
Patients trust you to keep them healthy and living and to be stewards of their personal medical records.
 
According to recent studies only 74% of practices believe they have proper protections in place to prevent unauthorized viewing of phi. 
 
And up to 66% of people in the same study have concerns when medical information is transmitted electronically. 
     With 1 in 4 offices not having the proper safe guards in place to prevent HIPAA violations it becomes an expensive problem for everyone. 
 
With technology making strides the way it has, there is no excuse for not having your patients trust. 
Be familiar with HIPAA or,
Work with a company that is.  Specific and practical working knowledge of  the Security Rule which deals with technology used in health care is essential. 
 

A robust security platform like EverShield should include:


   • Provides secure remote access to critical applications on a private network.
 
   •A BAA (Business Associate Agreement).
 
   • Multiple communications modalities within the app to avoid user errors.
 
   • Data not stored or cached in third party data centers without a BAA in place.
 
   • Encryption for data in transit and data at rest.
   • Ability to meet state by state HIPAA data retention requirements.
