Security and compliance work hand in hand to protect practices and clinics from data breaches and government fines. But there’s an important distinction between them that a lot of people still don’t quite understand.
You can hire the top security expert in the country to come into your office and install the most advanced security measures on the market today, but if you’re not also taking steps to address compliance, chances are high that you would fail an OCR audit.
An organization like Compliancy Group can make sure your practice is fully
compliant, but without security measures in place, your data still faces a serious risk of exposure.
Compliance is about implementing mandatory safeguards and being able to document what you’ve done to avoid fines. Security is about using technology and infrastructure to mitigate the risk of a data breach. At the end of the day, it’s how you combine the two that will decide where your practice stands.
Don’t wait for the OCR to tell you where you’ve gone wrong. Let On Time Tech and Compliance Group get you on the right track.
