Is Your ACO Prepared for HIPAA?
LaunchMed proudly presents our white paper "Is Your ACO Prepared for HIPAA?", a guide for Accountable Care Organizations to maintain HIPAA compliance.
This helpful guide provides all of the information on HIPAA and HITECH an ACO needs in order to succeed, including definitions of covered entities and business associates, how to comply with privacy and security rules, examples of recent HIPAA violations, the importance of HIPAA to ACOs, and a helpful ACO HIPAA preparedness checklist.
Why is this so important?
With the explosion of ACO data solutions, increasing monitoring by CMS, the growing number of actions brought against organizations for violations, and the industry pressure to integrate the data sources, HIPAA compliance is now more important than ever before. To succeed, health care organizations should develop strategies to promote HIPAA compliance.
