Are you a Covered Entity?  If so, do you know if your IT provider is HIPAA compliant?  As of 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the final omnibus rule governing patient data protection under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).  Within this, the final rule covers “business associates” as well as healthcare organizations such as physician practices, hospitals and health plans.  Site Tech Services is a HIPAA compliant Managed Services provider and offers HIPAA compliance consulting for your organization.
