Reduce HIPAA Compliance Risk
Protecting your organization against devastating security breaches is a vital component of your IT strategy. Cybercriminals are continually searching for ways to infiltrate your organization, and even the smallest error in compliance standards can expose your company to substantial risks.
Navigating the twisted requirements for HIPAA, HITECH, and other compliance standards can be a full-time job for interior staff members, which can be a challenge when you’re attempting to move forward with other initiatives. It’s no surprise that many healthcare and wellness companies are turning to Alvarez Technology Group to fill the gaps in both knowledge and implementation with predictable IT solutions for your most stringent compliance requirements.
HIPAA Compliance Assessments and Remediation
The Alvarez Technology Group team has over a decade of experience helping ensure that organizations attain and maintain HIPAA, HITECH, and other compliance requirements. We leverage our in-depth knowledge in the space to provide infrastructure solutions that meet or exceed federal, state, and local guidelines for data security, workflows, and access controls — anything that could threaten the confidentiality of your patient data. Facing a HIPAA audit can be a daunting task, which is why you need a knowledgeable firm of IT professionals to help support you throughout the process. Finding the time required to make any changes discovered during a HIPAA compliance review can be difficult if you’re only able to call upon internal resources. We can help you quickly execute any changes required to bring your solutions back in full compliance with HIPAA or other data security requirements.
Cybersecurity Protection for Sensitive Patient Data
Proactive cybersecurity solutions are a foundational component of any IT strategies, particularly in industries that handle a wealth of confidential information. This data must be protected not only when it’s being stored, but also in transit and at rest in your business applications. Whether your staff members are working remotely or in the office, having controlled access to PHI and other sensitive information helps ensure that your organization is compliant at all times. Active monitoring for unexpected activity, dedicated administration for access levels, and even the physical security of your locations all work together to help reduce the overall cybersecurity risk for your firm.
HIPAA Compliance in the Cloud
There are ongoing conversations around security and compliance for cloud solutions, particularly in the healthcare sector. Access to PHI must be severely limited at all times, requiring strict vendor and employee controls as well as repeatable processes. Fortunately, cloud compliance doesn’t have to be complicated — particularly when your digital assets are being managed securely in the cloud. The controls put in place by the professionals at Alvarez Technology Group are robust and efficient, allowing your teams to quickly and reliably access the information needed to support patients and business operations while still promoting a high level of security throughout your organization.
Active Monitoring for Immediate Breach Notifications
It’s an unfortunate reality that few systems are entirely untouchable, which is why active notifications and access reporting are an integral element of your compliance activities. Our team will work with your technical and business professionals to tightly define standards for data and application usage, creating rapid notifications to crucial personnel any time your system usage falls outside those parameters. This type of active monitoring reduces the risk of an expanded breach, allowing you to shore up defenses or block ongoing security leaks quickly.
