Security is paramount when dealing with protected health information (PHI). The services offered by SME focus on maintaining a responsible level of security for any and all of a business’s electronic PHI, fixing and preventing potential HIPAA violations and best practices training for employees that promote a positive, professional reputation and the trust of their clients.
HIPAA violations can cost a business up to $50,000 per violation, possible jail time depending on level of negligence and a $1,500,000 fine for an identical provision in the same calendar year. Without diligent management of a business’s electronic systems, mistakes and violations will prevail internally and leave external vulnerabilities for criminals to exploit. So try the comprehensive HIPAA compliance package offered by SME; professional results in security and systems management, it’s what we do and it’s in our name.
