One of the biggest challenges in today’s healthcare industry is staying up-to-date with compliance laws and regulations while keeping patient information confidential and secure. In 1996, the U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), creating new challenges for healthcare organizations and related businesses. In 2009, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment act to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology.
HIPAA compliance requires that all healthcare providers, clearinghouses, and health plans develop a security plan and conduct regular risk assessments to protect Patient Health Information (PHI). These measures must be documented and kept current, as well as ensure all employees are trained in best practices.

Our team has invested the time and resources into studying and implementing controls that meet and exceed these standards. Keeping our clients’ information safe is mission critical (for example, all data is encrypted at rest and in motion) and our staff is highly skilled and trained to ensure confidentiality. Beyond these measures, we take extra steps to encrypt and secure our Online Client Portal and email communications to ensure the highest level of security.
Through regular training and up-to-date research, Rocket Receivables is well positioned to respond to new guidelines and changes to the laws once they are released.
