Introduction

Sage Intacct recently retained Porter Research to conduct a market study targeting financial and executive leadership within non-acute facilities, including ambulatory groups, radiology groups, surgery centers and skilled nursing facilities, to better gauge their understanding of Protected Health Information (PHI) and HIPAA compliance as it relates to finance and accounting professionals in their organizations.

The study revealed that while most respondents agreed that protecting patient PHI was important, they fail to recognize that a significant portion of their daily responsibilities requires their financial staff to access PHI – resulting in an increased risk of exposure, data breaches and ultimately HIPAA violations.

 

In addition, the study showed that most respondents rely heavily on written policies and employee education as the primary means for avoiding HIPAA violations. This, however, leaves room for human error, which can be minimized in the finance and accounting departments with the implementation of modern HIPAA-compliant financial management systems.

 

This paper reveals five major findings from the research that will help financial leaders better understand their risks when it comes to HIPAA violations in their own departments and gives practical advice on how to mitigate these risks going forward.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the global economy in profound ways. With efforts to contain the virus still ongoing, uncertainty is an ever-present obstacle in business decisions. Financial services firms need to understand the current health of their own firm, as well as their investments, as they react to the constant stream of new information on shutdowns, re-openings, unemployment figures, recession data, and government programs.

 

Many financial firms are focused on solving immediate challenges. It may be hard to imagine investing in new technologies at a time like this. But consider this – a Harvard Business Review study of the 2008 recession found that:

Companies that combined cost-cutting with selective investing before the crisis ended had a 76% chance of pulling ahead of competition, as opposed to companies that solely cut costs.

Opportunity exists even in times of crisis, so let’s explore the five actions you can take to ensure a faster recovery.
