PCI Compliance

PCI  Compliance

The First Step in Safe and Secure Payment Processing

What it Means

The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards is a set of policies and procedures that must be adhered to by any business accepting credit or debit cards for payment.  Designed to ensure uniform protection of cardholder data, PCI DSS governs a variety of areas in which to safeguard data, including:

  • Your office or practice location

  • All computers, including laptops and mobile devices

  • Employee training and access

  • Documented policies

  • Security services

While PCI DSS sets a baseline for security, it is not a one-stop solution.   Rather, security assurance an on-going process that can require annual, or even quarterly, testing and reporting.

Why it Matters

Many payment processors assess heavy fines or penalties to business customers that fail to prove that they meet PCI standards on a regular and ongoing basis.  If you haven’t paid careful attention to your credit card statement, you may already be paying these fees without even realizing it.

PCI compliance is not just a financial matter, however.  Demonstrating your compliance is an important way to show your patients that you care about the security of their personal information, and do everything in your power to protect it.

PCI compliance can also be an important first step in preparing for compliance with healthcare industry regulations such as HIPAA and SOX.

“We are an extremely busy optometric practice, and we are always very conscious of business costs.  We use a practice management software and couldn’t believe we could start updating payment directly into the patient ledger and securely keep patients credit card information on file.”
