Telehealth Compliance

Organizations across industry sectors have come to rely on Certification and Compliance Automation tools to reduce the cost and speed up the resources needed to achieve international standards. Migrating to this type of auditing technology is of particular relevance in the Telemedicine industry, where access to medical records is sensitive and sensitive data needs to be securely stored.

Compliance Automation is the process of automating the enforcement of a set of standards and processes, which in the case of organizations in the Telemedicine industry usually involves HIPAA and other data privacy standards. It is important to note that Compliance Automation is not simply the application of automated rules to validate compliance. Rather, it is a system of continuously monitoring resources to ensure their ongoing compliance with certain standards.

These systems, when properly implemented, can detect discrepancies between different documentation across different systems, such as parent and subsidiary companies, and alert the appropriate personnel to take corrective action. There are also regulations governing the transfer of private medical information; Compliance Automation can help to ensure that these regulations are met, by regularly monitoring the handling of this type of data. By sending notifications to compliance officers of suspicious data handling activities, Compliance Automation can significantly reduce the risk of critical data losses.

Certifications provide organizations with an additional layer of assurance that the safety and security measures adopted by them are up to industry standards. Some of the primary certifications to consider for organizations in the Telemedicine domain are ISO27001 and HITRUST. Beyond compliance with the regulatory standards, these certifications give personnel a sense of assurance that the organization is taking the necessary steps to ensure the integrity and security of data.

Deployment of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based technologies can assist Compliance Automation Systems in their enforcement activity. AI powered automated audit systems can recognize, analyze, study and report on organizational activities and processes, such as the storage and transmission of medical data, thus helping to reduce the manual effort of traditional auditing. These AI tools are able to detect anomalies, such as aberrant activities of employees, and alert a compliance officer as needed.

Organizations can also benefit from AI-driven systems in th e certification process. A certification platform, such as EverCompliance’s, can leverage AI algorithms to process data sets, detect and identify the changes needed to bring the organization in line with certification standards quickly. AI can also detect discrepancies in process profiles and send notifications to specific personnel when discrepancies are found, allowing them to take corrective actions without manual effort.

In conclusion, Compliance Automation and Certification processes can be substantially improved with the assisted of AI systems. The implementation of AI based technologies in this domain can increase the accuracy and efficiency of the enforcement process and at the same time reduce the amount of time and resources needed for auditing and certification of organizations in the Telemedicine industry.
