We Get HIPAA.

The Healthcare industry is constantly evolving

As the healthcare sector evolves, it faces an increasing need for more adaptive and secured techologies. IT Security is always an ongoing process. Layer3 helps your practice by keeping on top of that process for you.

We understand Healthcare IT

We understand the complexities of Healthcare IT, and HIPAA/HITECH Compliance. It is the core passion and driving force of our business.

For that reason, we act more as your business partner, and are just as invested in your compliance as you are. We look at everything from a holistic point of view, just as you would with your patients. We perform an extensive Security Risk Assessment, and then tackle all aspects of the assessment, not just technology. Additionally, we work with the Security and Compliance Officers at each practice to develop a risk mitigation plan unique to each practice. For issues we may not be able to solve, we partner with HIPAA Secure Now and Compliancy Group to get you situated.

Our Approach

Technology actually plays a very small role in making your practice compliant with HIPAA and HITECH regulations. In order to determine the proper course of action for your practice, we must perform a risk assessment, and then design a risk mitigation plan, with proper policies, procedures and access controls. Additionally, we will design a proper employee education plan - acheived through periodic elearnings and on-site classes, if required. We also make sure that the proper technilogical and physical security safeguards are deployed to protect your patients sensitive health data.
