Podcast: Health Care Checkup - Minimizing HIPAA Breach Penalties
By Nicole M. Thorn & James McCaulley, AtNetPlus on February 22, 2021
In this episode, James McCaulley of AtNetPlus, shares with us how a third-party technical vendor assists health care entities with their HIPAA compliance. Even if many systems are remotely hosted by third-party providers, covered entities under HIPAA are still responsible for the protected health information they generate. Last year's pandemic created a sense of urgency for many health care providers to have to scramble to obtain a telehealth platform and make other on-the-fly operational decisions. Now is the time to reconvene and ensure those processes and platforms are HIPAA-compliant.
