Health information technology (HIT) is the most essential component of maintaining medical records and compliance. Unlike most industries where data integrity affects companies from a financial and legal perspective, healthcare law requires that records be kept for extended periods of time after transactions are complete for the purposed of medical history. This means that a faulty healthcare record could lead to an incorrect diagnosis, which has serious implications regarding a patient’s care, as well as potential liability cases that could land the offending party in criminal court. Since both the physical well-being and finances of consumers are at risk, more steps need to be taken to guarantee the privacy of patients and the accuracy of healthcare records.
EG Technologies employs practices of the regulatory framework set forth by the Health IT Policy Committee (HITC) for risk mitigation, and Title II of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA), which pertains to national standards for electronic health care in terms of privacy and security. In addition to alleviating liability concerns, our HIT infrastructures will improve the quality of healthcare by increasing administrative efficiency, lowering labor costs (which lowers patient costs), improving communication between healthcare professionals, and preventing administrative errors that put your organization at risk.
