HIPAA Compliant IT Support Services
Computers have been used in the medical field almost as long as there have been computers, and with the advent of the internet, these computer systems were able to communicate and share information with other medical professionals both near and far. Unfortunately, cyber criminals were also early adopters of computer technologies, and the sharing of patient information within your information technology (IT) infrastructure could put these patients at risk. For many years, medical professionals chose not to use computer systems to share information to avoid concerns related to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which protects the private information of medical patients. Once more medical offices started to use IT systems to store and share internally and externally, IT professionals often left the HIPAA compliance up to the medical professionals. Today, support professionals and vendors are also held responsible for maintaining HIPAA compliance standards, and IT ArchiTeks is committed to helping our medical industry clients meet or exceed all HIPAA standards through our IT compliant support services.
We Understand HIPAA Compliance
As of 2013, the Final Omnibus Rule modified the HIPAA compliance standards and included Managed IT Services Providers (MSPs), like IT ArchiTeks, as responsible parties in protecting patient private information. In keeping with these regulations, IT ArchiTeks works with medical professionals to create and maintain HIPAA compliant computer networks and IT systems. Our IT professionals have completed numerous projects for medical clinics, virtual doctor’s offices, at-home healthcare providers, and other specialty medical practices. Whether you are maintaining an internal computer network to store patient charts or you’re meeting with your patients virtually using a telehealth platform, the IT ArchiTeks team has the knowledge and skill to deliver HIPAA compliant IT solutions to keep your healthcare practice going.
