Complexities of True HIPAA Compliance for Therapy Clinics
Most of us know that the basis of HIPAA is the safeguarding of Protected Health Information (PHI). Unfortunately, many clinic owners, admins, and therapists do not understand the plethora of HIPAA nuances that need to be implemented in the therapy clinic environment.
HIPAA fines can be the result of small actions and oversights that may never have crossed your mind. Once the HIPAA door is open due to a breach, the resulting fines can be devastating, accumulating at a rate of up to $50,000 per violation.
The monetary fines themselves can be crushing, but the reputational loss and long-term hit to revenue has put many clinics out of business.
We want you to know for certain that you are doing everything you can to avoid these consequences.
