									     Accurate Diagnosis of Risks with Pragmatic IT Compliance Solutions

The number of IT compliance violations in the healthcare industry is strikingly high posing serious threats
to patients and severely affecting the reputation and revenues of the organizations. Instances of data
leakages and security breaches through willful and malicious intentions or through sheer negligence of the
staff have led to the need and demand for strict and vigilant actions. It is mandatory for all medical
providers to have a fully equipped security management process in place to ensure that all risks are
effectively addressed. Every organization has to have a well-planned strategy in execution and also be
prepared to face any compliance challenges.


As the occurrences are becoming common any organization that fails to enforce a competent security
solution will be perceived as one with an indifferent and negligent attitude. And this could lead to severe
legal and expensive financial penalties. Thus every healthcare provider should learn lessons from those
who have already suffered losses due to ineffective security processes and those who have been pulled up
due to their lackadaisical attitudes. Every healthcare provider has to adhere to the HIPAA and HITECH
compliance rules to survive in the industry.


As these compliance regulations are continuously upgraded and amended it becomes a necessity for the
medical organizations to be aware of these changes and incorporate them in the existing policies to avoid
any adverse situations. Most of the organizations struggle in this sphere particularly as they do not have
proficient processes to incorporate the changes quickly and effectively. Thus it is very important to
employ solutions with flexible capabilities so that the changes can be integrated without any hassles and
the governance risk and compliance issues can be addressed comprehensively.
