Healthcare providers can use PSIGEN solutions for capture and workflow and remain compliant with HIPAA regulations
Healthcare administration needs are highly complex, in part due to the regulations every healthcare provider must comply with by law. The healthcare industry faces some of the most stringent regulations, and for good reason. Doctor’s offices and hospitals house a wide range of personal information for each patient they care for, including medical records, patient insurance information, social security numbers, home addresses and more. The protection of this information is vital, and therefore the regulations imposed on the industry are very thorough. The main regulatory law healthcare facilities deal with is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The law requires health care providers and organizations to follow procedures to ensure the security and confidentiality of protected health information at all times.
