Mitigating HIPAA Compliance Risk for Ambulatory Surgical Centers

Security breaches or cyber-attacks are continuing to rise and unfortunately, Ambulatory Surgical Centers (ASCs) are not immune to these attacks. If you are not using secure and HIPAA compliant software, your ASC is vulnerable to such attacks that could have a more significant impact and leave you with huge government fines.

To help mitigate risks, we recommend our ASC clients pair their cloud-based EHR with the #1 Best in KLAS HITRUST CSF certified front and back-end speech recognition solution, Nuance® Dragon® Medical One (DMO).

By implementing a flexible and scalable speech recognition solution to your existing data technology stack, you can provide your patients with a HIPAA-compliant documentation process. Adding cloud-based, AI-powered DMO to your EHR can additionally mitigate risks by:

Performing regular document audits within your EHR using your voice

Monitoring and managing user access via the back-end reporting features

Automatically updating your speech recognition solution via cloud technology help you maintain the required HIPAA compliant security policies

These features work to meet the state and government guidelines to ensure sensitive patient data stays safe and secure when documenting within or outside of your surgical center environment. In our recent webinars, we have addressed and outlined these compliance changes and the risks today’s medical center face by using outdated software with no security updates which could lead to HIPAA violations.

DMO supports the HIPAA requirements for patient security, data privacy, and confidentiality by employing secure encryption methods when paired with your HIPAA compliant EHR solution - all to mitigate risks for non-compliance. DMO’s HIPAA compliant security ensures that sensitive patient data is protected with advanced encryption technology and a secure cloud-based platform. These inclusions and more, can offer peace of mind to busy surgical centers and healthcare professionals.

Is Your Ambulatory Center at Risk because of outdated HIPAA Compliant Software?

Extreme vulnerability exists when using older software, such as Dragon Medical Practice Edition (DMPE) which is no longer supported. If you are still using a version of this legacy software, contact our team to learn more about upgrading to Dragon Medical One.
