Welcome to our weekly column focused on the healthcare industry.
Here at Nexa1, we view our role in technology much like a physician, we consult with our clients, take a history, review symptoms, schedule tests, and prescribe a solution. Sometimes that solution is as simple as taking medication (patching a system). Sometimes it requires a more complex procedure, like surgery (replacing systems). Often times it involves maintenance activities (monitoring your systems or reviewing your compliance needs).
Whatever the needs of your healthcare practice, we strive to prescribe the most secure, cost-effective solution that produces quality outcomes and long-term success of our clients.

A HIPAA breach isn’t just loss of data. It’s loss of time, loss of money, and loss of reputation. What happens when you have unauthorized access to protected health information?
It’s hard to believe we are nearing the end of the first quarter of 2019. It’s been a busy few months for sure and it’s easy to let the finer points of compliance slip to the back recesses of your mind if you’re not careful.
