Bosma Technology Resources, Inc. Security covers both the physical and data aspects of security. Our central site is physically located off the beaten path, locked behind many doors and only a few trusted employees have keys. At your location, outside doors to the facility are locked during hours of patient inactivity and doors into HIPAA-protected areas are behind access controlled doors. An on-site evaluation done by one of our professionals at Bosma Technology Resources, Inc. will also help you determine the necessary steps to make your location HIPAA compliant.

With Bosma Technology Resources, Inc., data is secured by:

  • Controlling access to the system
  • Assigning permissions for specific data access while using the system
  • Terminating access to those individuals no longer employed
  • Logging all changes to patient protected data
  • Systematically forcing periodic password changes
  • Using a password strength meter to force at least medium passwords for most users
  • Verifying identity on a periodic basis or when entering certain administrative areas
  • Sending real time text and email alerts to the Security Officer and Bosma Technology Resources, Inc. administrator when certain key events are attempted on the system
  • Logging all changes to the permissions system
  • Encrypting all patient protected data files
  • Logging all prints or exports from the system
  • Requiring that the Security Officer regularly review the aforementioned logs
  • Documenting every screen anyone on the system uses
  • Mandating in our policies and procedures that any activity putting patient data at risk is a reportable Security Incident

 

Employees are regularly reminded about HIPAA security on the initial log on page. These informational warnings are rotated on a periodic basis.

If the HIPAA-required backup of your patient data fails, the Bosma Technology Resources, Inc. Security Officer and Bosma Technology Resources, Inc. Administrator are notified in real time by text and email. Remediation of the problem is started. Contact Us
