If you work in or manage a hospital, group of hospitals, business associate or just about any other healthcare enterprise, you know your challenges include a rapidly changing payer landscape, fierce completion, and stressed out, overworked employees. If only that were the end of it!
Today, your most vexing challenge might be coping with ever-increasing, sometimes crushing, regulatory compliance issues. We can hardly turn our computers on in the morning without reading about yet another clinician or facility facing a HIPAA violation, a devastating healthcare security breach or an OCR (Office for Civil Rights) investigation of a provider facility.
What do we know for sure? Death, taxes and laundry? Yes of course, but what else?
- Compliance rules will continue to change
- Neither ignorance nor an organization’s size is an appropriate defense
- Today’s bad guys are devastatingly clever at breaking through IT security walls
- Not only are you responsible for your own operation’s security, risk and compliance, but you’re increasingly responsible for your business associates’ compliance as well
- If you have any size to your healthcare organization, your exposure starts at seven figures and goes up from there.
Rest assured, this list of worrisome issues goes on and on, but you get the picture. This is not the time to stick your head in the sand and play ostrich.
I would like to invite you, your compliance officer, CSIO, CIO, CFO and any other appropriate team members to join us for Aegify’s next helpful webinar, “HIPAA Omnibus: How to do HIPAA Security Risk Analysis” on July 7.
