Tier3MD is a fully certified HIPAA compliant IT support group for medical practices. Because we focus solely on medical IT support, HIPAA is a very important part of our business. As we speak, audits are being completed in medical practices, insurance carrier and billing service offices. Fines are starting to be levied, and people are really becoming conscientious about the data in their practice. Not only do you need to be compliant, your IT provider and other Business Associates need to be compliant as well.
If your current IT provider is not concerned with HIPAA, you may want to consider another IT provider for your practice. HIPAA should be in the forefront when implementing your systems, along with a solid list of policies and procedures. HIPAA is a great concern to the medical community. It would be almost impossible to meet a Physician or Practice Manager who has not heard of HIPAA, and does not have a genuine concern for it.
