Healthcare providers that rely on internal IT infrastructure to maintain the patient information must comply with HIPAA rules. The rules require the implementation of physical and technological safeguards to protect the security of the stored health information.

Network Computer Pros plays an important role in helping you achieve HIPAA compliance and maintain the integrity of your IT infrastructure. Figuring out how to comply doesn’t have to be complex and expensive. We’re already familiar with the standards and our complete managed services model enables us to quickly identify any areas of your IT network that are not yet up to standard.

To assess your level of current compliance, we’ll conduct a non-intrusive network audit. The audit focuses on the seven key areas listed below, and is a great way to establish a baseline for making improvements.

These seven areas (known as SAS70) have been defined by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

Best Practices, Network Health Monitoring, Roles and Permissions Management, 24×7 Monitoring, Patch Management
SNMP-based Monitoring, Event Logging, Asset Discovery
Readiness Planning via Reports, Performance Monitors, Backup Management, Collaborative Services
Continuous Monitoring, Remote Management, Deep Monitoring of Critical Servers
ISO17799-Compliant Solution, Password Controls, Auditing, Intrusion Detection, Vulnerability Assessment
Firewall Management, MBSA Integration
