Healthcare data is governed by laws and regulations and it is of utmost importance for organizations to keep it safe. If not protected, it can fall into the wrong hands and it gives a criminal everything they need to commit medical identity theft (The Rise of Medical Identity Theft – Consumer Reports). Small and large organizations face HIPAA compliance challenges and heeding the following seven vital tips can help your organization minimize risks.

HIPAA can be difficult to comply with, but it’s a necessity. It is in the best interest of the HIPAA-covered entities to be compliant. Noncompliance is noncompliance, regardless of the organization lacking knowledge or resources. As healthcare and technology continue to evolve, we will continue to encounter new and old challenges.
