$50,000 is a lot of money!
HIPAA… there we said it. Five letters of the alphabet that can wreak havoc on healthcare providers.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) a single “Did Not Know” HIPAA violation can cost a company up to $50,000 with an annual maximum of $1.5 million.
Reliance on security tools provided by ePHI management software platforms is not enough. Just consider the following that might be found on a smartphone or tablet being used by a health practitioner:
- patient triage photos
- downloaded emails
- text messages
- GPS navigation to patient’s house
- website cookies
- cached passwords
The HHS recommends using feature sets such as remote lock and wipe as provided by License Lock Locate for your healthcare data solutions application to help reduce costly HIPAA violations when using mobile devices and tablets.
