Avoid hefty legal fines with a seasoned technology partner
Get peace of mind from working with a HIPAA-verified technology partner capable of protecting ePHI. You can protect your organization from the legal ramifications of breaches such as the recent, eye-watering, $3.5m fine handed down to Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA) for failure to implement adequate cybersecurity safeguards against intrusion interference and theft.
Healthcare organizations may be liable for data breaches, including those caused by inexperienced IT managed service providers. Some legal requirements that healthcare organizations need to comply with to avoid such fines include:
- Data loss prevention measures (e.g. duplicating and managing multiple copies of electronic health records)
- Cybersecurity awareness and training programs for staff
- Comprehensive assessments of cyber threats to ePHI - both offsite and on-premise.
Merit Technologies offer a full suite of HIPAA-compliant technology solutions for small and medium healthcare organizations that directly address these issues. With over a decade of experience, our expert team has the right mix of skills and resources to keep your organization compliant with our secure data management, processing and transmission solutions.
