The School of Medicine Compliance team provides guidance to the units, departments, and centers on managing identified risks associated with the usage, transmitting, and storing of HIPAA and/or ePHI related data and the systems therein.
Choosing to ignore potential risks only puts an organization’s business, financial, operational, and legal structures in jeopardy. Regulators are keen on having their compliance expectations met and are prepared to escalate enforcement when they are not. To avoid the worst result, organizations must be proactive about identifying their susceptibility to risk and implementing a compliance management program that effectively safeguards their future.
