The Navis HITECH Complete assessment plan helps healthcare organizations achieve full compliance by providing all required IT assessments from a single provider.
Louisville, Colo. (PRWEB) January 11, 2012
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, enacted in 2009, promotes the adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) and extends the reach of the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). As a result, both Covered Entities and Business Associates must protect sensitive electronic protected health information (ePHI) from cyber-attack and data breach and conduct Security Risk Assessments as a part of a comprehensive risk management program.
Unfortunately, many small to medium CE’s and BA’s don’t have IT security specialists on staff, nor do they have the budget typically required to bring an experienced auditor on-site to conduct a review.
Coalfire solves that problem with Navis HITECH Complete, a subscription-based service that provides an auditor-caliber assessment toolkit bundled with unlimited phone support from experienced assessors.
“No company can afford to be left behind in digital security vigilance as health records become digitized. The Navis HITECH Complete assessment plan helps healthcare organizations achieve full compliance by providing all required IT assessments from a single provider,” said Mark Lucas, Coalfire’s VP of Navis. “Navis is intuitive, easy-to-use and provides a foundation for continuous compliance management.”
