Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and ECMNOW!

According to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, more commonly referred to by the acronym HIPAA, healthcare providers are required to secure records, exchange data electronically, and protect patient information. Failure to do so could result in costly penalties. And according to Nossaman LLP, a national law firm specializing in healthcare, “the HIPAA enforcement atmosphere is becoming more aggressive.”

The Solution: Enterprise Content Management (ECM) with ECMNOW!, which allows healthcare providers to enhance efficiency, better manage electronic records and documents, control data security to manage patient privacy and confidentiality, and unify Electronic Health Records (EHR) with other information.

The Benefits of ECMNOW! for HIPAA Compliance

1. Electronic Document System: ECMNOW! allows healthcare providers to convert physical documents and records to electronic files for easy management and advanced search capacity, thus enhancing efficiency.

2. Data Security: Under HIPAA, healthcare providers are required to ensure the confidentiality of all patient records and control who has access to their systems. ECMNOW! allows healthcare providers to restrict access through extensive security settings to ensure only information necessary for the task can be viewed.

3. Unifying Records System: ECMNOW! allows healthcare providers to combine information from multiple formats – including electronic files, paper documents, print streams and email – increasing efficiency and saving money.
