HIPAA compliance measures require stringent health care security and privacy practices that are intended to ensure patient confidentiality for all health care related information. Keeping these regulations in mind, MS Inc. is backed by technology and coding amenable to all HIPAA policies and is open to current and future HIPAA policies.
A brief look on how we empower you with HIPAA compliance:
ØData Encryption - Mainstream Services Medical Billing values client concerns for complete security and privacy. We utilize 256-bit encryption and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology for all data transmission.
ØPhysical Security - Mainstream Services Medical Billing has built in strong physical security measures. These are a combination of special hardware and specific software measures to ensure security of the web site, servers and databases. Backed by firewall technology, all incoming traffic is intercepted to allow access to authorized users only. All critical systems are monitored 24/7 by experts trained in all aspects of physical and technical security.
ØUser Authentication Security - Mainstream Services Medical Billing controls access to restricted areas of the web site and database via login authentication. An automatic log off feature is in place to prevent unauthorized access to information in the event of the original user leaving the workstation without logging off.
ØInternal Audit - We record and regularly review all system activities, including but not limited to, login, file access and security events. Mainstream Services Inc. uses this audit system to assess and critique its technical security measures.
ØPersonnel Policies - Access to patient data is limited only to those employees who are liable to perform related tasks. Each employee is inherently made conscious to the fact that data accessed through their job functions is to be safeguarded and should not be disclosed to unauthorized parties. New employees are trained on all security systems and privacy policies during their initial orientation process.
ØContingency Plan - Mainstream Services Medical Billing has developed an emergency response plan, which is routinely updated and includes disaster recovery, data backup, as well as testing and revision procedures. This ensures our preparedness for any eventuality or contingency.
