While you can take different approaches to many aspects of your business, regulatory requirements do not fall into that category. For medical and health service providers, there are two acts that directly impact your technology needs. One is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The other is the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). If you provide any sort of health or medical service, you are already aware of these Acts and how important HIPAA compliance is.
Above all, protecting the privacy of your clients and keeping their records secure are the overriding elements of both Acts. That security depends heavily on your IT network and the infrastructure supporting it.
Organizations that must comply with these regulations often struggle with the scope, cost, and IT tools needed be HIPAA compliant. It is not enough to understand the rules. Don’t try to go it alone. Too much is at stake. Without a doubt, you need a technology expert. You need someone who can identify appropriate tools sufficient to maintain IT compliance and security. You need someone to consistently guide you in meeting the standards set by regulatory agencies.
Catapult Tech Solutions understands the connections between the Acts and security technology. In addition, we have the experience you need to guide you to the correct tools to be HIPAA and HITECH compliant. While you are protecting patient privacy, we can help you protect your IT security system against vulnerabilities and potential liability.
As a technology and security services company, there are two components of compliance that we can help you achieve.

The challenge is that security is not something you can address once and leave it to work. Cyber security needs change daily.

2. Deploy, maintain, and document IT systems that demonstrate HIPAA compliance for your business.
With Catapult Tech Solutions in your corner performing HIPAA compliance consultation and maintenance, you can rest easy. Not only do we deploy layers of the best security tools and processes, we also provide documentation.
An important part of the documentation shows the IT security measures in place. In addition, we encourage clients to engage in security policy development as well. A policy identifies systems, processes, and protocols in place to ensure security in daily operations.
That means when a HIPAA audit occurs, you will be ready with the documentation you need. HIPAA controls will be in place, processes documented, and robust, layered security is at work.
To sum it up, regulatory compliance is a requirement that businesses in the industry must meet in order to stay in business. Don’t try to go it alone. Bring in professionals that understand the rules as well as the technology to comply with the rules. Catapult Tech Solutions and compliance are just a phone call away.
