Capture Billing Increases Network Security to Help Protect Patient Records

Medical Billing Company complies with Federal Red Flag Rules, HIPAA and HITECH Act guidelines for network and data security to protect patient medical and financial records.

Washington DC (Vocus) September 9, 2009 -- Capture Billing & Consulting, Inc., a medical billing and practice management consulting company located outside of Washington, DC, has contracted with Office Defender of Sterling, Virginia to provide network administration services, upgrade network security, streamline encrypted backup procedures and implement disaster recovery protocols.

With new governmental requirements for securing patient’s protected health information (PHI) and the increased penalties in The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), it has become even more vital for medical billing companies to secure both physical and electronic data. Penalties for willful neglect under the HITECH Act can exceed $250,000 for data breaches of PHI.

“Our network security and multiple backup systems have always been above the industry standards for healthcare firms”, said Manny Oliverez , Director of Operation, “ but we are now taking it to a much higher level not normally seen in a medical billing company.”

Although not required by statue, Capture Billing has also installed closed circuit TV cameras, electronic badge readers for facility access, and enhanced network security that authenticates users with passwords that change every 60 seconds.

“To the best of our ability we want to make sure our client’s data is secure”, stated Oliverez.

Capture Billing, working with Office Defender, will continually review its administrative procedures for establishing and enforcing IT security policies, physical safeguards that protect computers and servers, and technical security that protects data and restricts access to the network to ensure compliance with the Red Flag Rules, HIPAA and HITECH Acts.
