INSURANCE & HIPAA COMPLIANCE FOR PHYSICIANS

 

Being a medical professional can be a very complicated profession, with all the rules, regulations and privacy issues your office needs to be concerned about.  You don't want your insurance to add further complication to your business.  It is important to have an insurance professional and insurance carrier on your side to help you understand what insurance your business should have to be sure you and your employees are protected properly.  One of the most important issues is HIPAA guidelines. HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.  Everyone, is concerned about privacy, doctors, dentists, nurses, and especially patients.  As a medical or dental professional you need to be more careful than ever.  I recently heard that the photo wall seen sometimes in the obstetricians office may be a violation of HIPAA!  

A violation of HIPAA is the same as a data breach.  If sensitive information gets in the wrong hands it can be costly to recover.  Please review our data breach page for more detailed information on What is a Data Breach, How does it happen, Who needs it and what you can do to protect yourself and your business.
