Why Is HIPAA Compliance Important?

HIPAA and PCI fines can be huge and costly. Each HIPAA violation or incorrectly filled out field on a form can easily cost $40,000 or more. HIPAA and PCI compliance is not something you want to risk. As HIPAA is a federally enforced mandate, the government has the authority to levy huge penalties and even shut down your business. A failed HIPAA audit can open your business up to a nightmare of bureaucracy and monetary penalties you want to avoid at all costs. Besides the penalties, HIPAA and PCI are more than just passing audits. They are both comprehensive rules of operation for your business and staff.

Even if you pass a HIPAA or PCI audit, you are required by law to keep logs, continually train employees and stay in compliance until next year’s audit. If you don’t follow your plan, it can be even more difficult than the 1st audit. SMS IT Group helps pass the audit and puts simple procedures in place for your firm to follow and trains your staff so that you avoid a more complex audit the next year.

pci-complianceSMS IT Group will not only ensure you pass your audit but will put the proper documentation, processes and training in place to ensure you easily pass each subsequent audit. Remember that auditors have the right to come on site and inspect your business at any time. If you pass your HIPAA audit and ignore the plan, an auditor can check on your business months later to find you are in violation and fine you or cancel your audit.
