					An Attestation of a Secure Environment with Healthcare Compliance Management

The HIPAA regulation was initiated as attacks on information security were becoming frequent
endangering the privacyof patients. The healthcare industry was suffering tremendous losses due to the
negligence of their staff and weak protection measures. HIPAA compliance is a priority and those who
waive or violate the rules have to face dire consequences. Many hospitals and health providers have
been penalized by the law with expensive charges, and have also lost their well-earned reputation.


The large hospitals do not have adequate security measures that can effectively detect any threats and
implement corrective actions immediately. The smaller hospitals are unable to exercise effective control
due to shortage of funds. In both the cases the mission to combine people and processes for building a
cohesive and compelling force against all malicious attacks fails miserably. The answer lies in the
deployment of robust healthcare compliance management software that addresses all security issues
effectively and helps in enforcing streamlined and efficient compliance governance and risk policies.


The compliance management software is a wise investment which guarantees success.It deploys
automated processes. The software provides a centralized management of all the processes, and
increases visibility which helps in assessing whether the situation is under control or not and in
determining the compliance status of the organization. The software provides 24x7 online monitoring
services and generates real-time reports, thus providing any updates promptly to the business. The
business can then make quick decisions and be prepared for any offensive attacks.


The compliance management software ensures all information sent out or received is passed through a
rigorous screening procedure to check for vulnerabilities.Access to confidential areas isallowedonly
forauthorized users who pass the stringent authentication process. The vulnerability management
solution is extremely easy to deploy and use, thus reducing the time required for regulatory compliance
and certification processes. The solution facilitates integration and provides the best support for HIPAA
compliance, PCI compliance, SOX, ISO, COBIT and the rest of the compliance regulations.


As the solutions are delivered on the cloud with on-demand service facilities, the requirement for
additional investment is low with very high returns. The focus of the healthcare compliance management
software is on adherence and maintenance of a highly controlled and compliant environment. Each and
every area is checked for flaws that could lead to disasters. Remediation measures are implemented on
the weak areas for a resilient and effective end result.
