HIPAA Compliance

Size doesn't matter, HIPAA applies to you.

Regardless of the size of the organization, if you handle Personal Health Information (PHI) you have to follow the rules of HIPAA. This can be a daunting exercise of weeding through the various technology solutions and aligning processes and procedures. Now you have to expand this exercise to your Business Associates. How exhausting.

At Novacoast we understand that a one-size-fits-all solution for HIPAA requirements is not a reality. We listen to organizations to find where the pain really is and we apply the right remedy together. We have solutions for the small doctor's offices as well as for the large hospitals.
