The healthcare industry is a storehouse of vast personal information of the general public. Security of data is thus critical for survival and sustenance. The last thing that any organization would want is a data breach or compromise of personal information of its stakeholders. This would require them to upgrade to new technology and follow the best practices as stated in various statutes. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a statute followed by various organizations in this industry to improve effectiveness of the nation’s healthcare system.
Penalties under this act range from $100 per violation, to a yearly maximum fine of $25,000 to $50,000 per violation or an overall annual maximum of $1.5 million. VComply believes that it is always better to follow industry best practices to stay ahead of your competitors by improving your overall business processes as well as reducing the cost of non-compliance.
