Adhering to and being compliant to HIPAA rules and regulation is a crucial part of Safeguards policies and procedures. The United States medical industry has been handed a substantial mandate through federal HIPAA legislation to maintain the confidentiality of their patients and their patients' health information (PHI). These HIPAA regulations have
recently been updated and restructured which gives health practitioners an even greater standard to abide by and adhere to. These mandates may cause office managers and doctors alike to feel overwhelmed with the implementation of the regulations. It is our desire to assist the healthcare community in complying with these regulations and thereby avoid incurring the hefty fines imposed by the revised
regulations This is why Safeguard is here, to take the stress and worry off of your hands.
Most of us now have had many dealings with the HIPPA law, whether it be at a doctor's office, hospital visit or dealing with a member of your family's health issues. Knowing that your medical documents are being taken seriously when it comes to personal information is what we comply with and help many area facilities in keeping up with the HIPPA regulations set for them.
