Businesses and organizations in the healthcare industry, including dental practices and clinics, are under serious pressure to follow strict HIPAA standards today. HIPAA was first established by the federal government back in 1996 before we really knew how to use and handle the Internet and technology. As a result, the wave of cybercrimes had surfaced, consuming patients and individuals information that belonged to various healthcare organizations. Many patients and individuals suffered from serious losses and financial damages due to identity theft.
Because of this, healthcare organizations and offices were held liable for these damages in various lawsuits. With the rise in security breaches, threats, and attacks, businesses are under pressure to follow HIPAA standards more than ever today. But how do you know if your business is following HIPAA standards accurately?
Businesses and organizations, particularly those in the healthcare space, must handle client data and information with the utmost care and in the most professional manner possible.

In fact, many businesses and organizations unknowingly mishandle or misuse client data and information; however, these organizations are still liable. This is why it is important for your business to conduct a HIPAA compliance risk assessment or even perform routine risk audits to ensure that your organization is following HIPAA standards appropriately and correctly.
