The healthcare industry faces significant regulatory compliance challenges every day. Protecting confidential patient information internally and externally is a top priority whether it’s to comply with HIPAA, HITECH, HITRUST or another regulation. LBMC Security & Risk Services understands the challenge. We have advised many clients on healthcare regulatory issues and assisted them in their overall information security issues. Doing so, we always keep in mind that while compliance is mandatory so is operating the business successfully. LBMC Security & Risk Services looks for the opportunities to use our insight and your mandates to accomplish both.

HITECH - Several provisions of 2009’s Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) strengthen civil and criminal enforcement of HIPAA rules that address the privacy and security issues related to the electronic transmission of health information.
HITRUST - The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) established the most widely used, certifiable Common Security Framework (CSF) in the healthcare industry.
