About ImageQuest and
Healthcare IT & Cybersecurity Compliance
Are you a small or medium-sized medical practice, billing or durable medical goods company needing to upgrade your network security? Is your experience with your current vendor leaving you feeling overlooked and frustrated with their service?
Data security is a high priority need for all medical organizations, as hackers have a large target on your industry. You collect and manage patient information through ePHI and EMR – perfect for a crook looking to sell identity theft packages, phish an influential executive or ruin a child’s credit rating.
Lose control of your records in a data breach and you’re in huge trouble. It’s a HIPAA violation, with fines and publicity. It’s a class-action lawsuit, with angry patients and other customers.
It’s loss of business, loss of trust – and on top of it, you have the FBI in the midst of everything treating your computer system as a crime scene.
Let us help you mitigate that risk and keep your IT systems secure and in regulatory compliance, at a predictable cost.
ImageQuest is your premier technology services partner, providing comprehensive Managed IT, Compliance, and Cybersecurity services to clients in Tennessee, Kentucky and across the U.S.
Our world-class team of savvy, experienced managers and engineers support your technology and help your organization thrive in a cyber-secure data environment.
IT & Cybersecurity Compliance
What is healthcare compliance in relation to IT Security?
While IT security in healthcare is still behind the times compared to other fields, there are some regulations in place that addresses these security concerns. There’s FDASIA, portions of HIPAA and HITECH – these are the three acts that try to address IT-related security concerns.
What is FDASIA?
The ONC and FDA together created a proposal for a risk-based regulatory framework for Health IT systems. They’ve even partnered with the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in order to refine and improve the standards. (The NIST is the industry standard for IT security regulations – they also create the standards used and enforced by the federal government) Under section 618 of FDASIA, providers need to follow suggested guidelines in order to ensure data security and create safeguards in the exchange of patient information. Healthcare organizations are expected to go through accreditation and certification standards. You can read the entire report for FDASIA here.
What is the HITECH act?
In order to regulate the use of Electronic health record systems, they established the HITECH act. This was created to mandate how to access these types of systems. Under the act, patients have the right to receive their electronic health information and they alone have the right to authorize who else can view and receive their health information. HITECH also determines how third party vendors who create EHR systems access and handle the electronic data within their systems. They are required to follow the rules under the act and could face severe penalties if found violating them.
These are some of the most common compliance regulations we help our clients navigate.
