Our comprehensive assessment with the F1 Solutions, Inc. professionals was a completely positive experience for our staff. The review was extensive — much more than just a simple network scan that others were touting — with each requirement explained clearly, outlining for us the specifics needed to protect our patients’ confidentiality. After putting in place all their recommendations, we can now concentrate on patient care and not stress about regulatory security. We could never have done this without the F1 Team and we are so grateful for their expertise.

HIPAA HITECH FAQ

Q: My business is cash only and/or I don’t submit to Medicaid or Medicare. Can these rules apply to my company?

A: Yes. If you transmit, process or store electronic identifiable patient health information then you fall under HITECH rules.


Q: How do I know if I have had an assessment?

A: Did you or an outside firm perform a network scan and thoroughly examine documentation? If not then you are still in need of the annual assessment required by law.


Q: I have an IT company maintaining our systems, so we are compliant, right?

A: Not necessarily. You need a comprehensive risk analysis to show you areas of concern that your IT company may not see with regular maintenance tasks.


Q: If someone came to my location and scanned my network, is that considered an assessment?

A: No. A vulnerability scan is only a small part of becoming fully compliant. Our 92-point HIPAA/ HITECH security assessment with remedial plan will ensure your ePHI data is secure.
