How Altus Ensures HIPAA Compliance for Pediatricians

Happy doctor with patient

In today’s digital landscape, the protection of patient information extends well beyond HIPAA compliance—it is essential to sustaining trust among patients, healthcare providers, and billing services. At Altus, we recognize the importance of this trust. That’s why we go beyond simply adhering to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA); we aim to set the benchmark for data security in the billing industry.

Data Security as a Partnership

Our commitment to data security starts with a strategic partnership with leading experts known for their prowess in healthcare data protection. This collaboration provides continuous, remote monitoring of our systems, ensuring a strong defense against unauthorized access. For your practice, this means patient information is safeguarded 24/7, throughout the year.

Empowering Through HIPAA Compliance Training

However, effective data protection isn’t solely about technology. Our team, which serves as your primary defense against data breaches, receives thorough HIPAA compliance training annually. This ensures that everyone, from our billing specialists to administrative personnel, is well-informed about the latest in privacy and security measures. We empower our team to manage sensitive information with the highest level of care, adhering strictly to regulatory requirements.

A Trust-Based Framework – Beyond HIPAA Compliant

Trust is the bedrock of our partnership with you. We solidify this trust through strict operational protocols, ensuring that any system handling Protected Health Information (PHI) is not only secure but fully compliant, supported by a signed Business Associate Agreement. This document is more than a formality; it represents our commitment that every tool, platform, and procedure we utilize upholds, if not surpasses, HIPAA’s stringent privacy and security standards.
