Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA compliance) is critical to organizations that deal with healthcare data within the United States, and to their service providers who may be located in various geographies.
The goal of HIPAA is to simplify the administrative processes of the healthcare system and to protect patients’ privacy. Information security considerations are involved throughout the guidelines and play a major role in the HIPAA Privacy Rule to achieve compliance.
The purpose of this rule is to protect personally identifiable information (PII) as it moves through the healthcare system. Healthcare organizations, including providers, payers and clearinghouses, must comply with the Privacy Rule.
Our Compliance methodology identifies seven steps for an organization to implement to become compliant with the HIPAA Security Rule.
