Medical Practices: Is your IT Support company HIPAA compliant?

Northern Virginia Computer Systems is now Teknik IT Management and Data Security

Our name has changed, but our dedication to serving all your business technology needs never will.

We are excited to announce that we have recently changed our business name from Northern Virginia Computer Systems, Inc. to Teknik IT Management and Data Security, Inc.The name change has come about as we have expanded our service area over the years and found that the current name causes difficulties by tying us to a specific region. By changing to this new name, it removes that restriction and more accurately reflects our mission to serve as your outsourced IT department while preserving the good reputation we have had for over thirteen years.

There has been no change in ownership, management or staff and it is business as usual here. We will continue to provide the same fine service and products on which we have built our standing in the industry.

If your answer to this is "I don't know" or "no", its time to either find out, or reevaluate your IT Support solution. HIPAA compliance is so important in an ever-evolving world of technology, and its up to you to make sure you stay ahead of the curve.

What HIPAA Compliance means for your practice

The federal government has put penalties in place for healthcare organizations that do not comply with the HIPAA requirements. In order to meet these requirements, your IT support company should be HIPAA Compliant to ensure that any solutions they provide are in line with these requirements. Why is this important?

Penalties for non-compliance

  • Failure to meet compliance deadlines results in non-payment of Medicare claims
  • Violations of HIPAA stipulations may result in fines up to $100 per incident with a maximum of $25,000 per year
  • Wrongful disclosure of protected healthcare information can result in a $50,000 fine
  • Offense under false pretenses carries a $100,000 penalty and/or imprisonment
  • Offense with intent to sell information results in a $150,000 fine and/or imprisonment
