Information about HIPAA Compliance Regulations
What is HIPAA Compliance Regulations?
HIPAA Compliance Regulations must be heeded; there are no options, only heavy fines. Every organization needs to develop a Culture of Compliance. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, (HIPAA), sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that physical, network, and process security measures are in place, and strictly followed.
The HIPAA Security Rule, and HIPAA Compliance Regulations, define the requirements to continuously secure electronic protected health information (EPHI) as it moves through the healthcare system. Healthcare organizations, providers, payers, and clearinghouses, must protect EPHI. InfoSight Inc. Managed Network Security solutions enforce administrative procedures, technical security mechanisms, services, and physical safeguards to ensure compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. You must implement them.
InfoSight Inc. understands HIPAA Compliance Regulations, and will host your data, as we are a compliant hosting provider, with administrative, physical, and technical safeguards in place, according to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. These safeguards are relevant to services provided by our HIPAA compliant hosting; so too are Audit Reports, Tracking Logs, Technical Policies, Network, Transmission, and details on what constitutes a HIPAA compliant data center.
A supplemental Act, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act supports the enforcement of HIPAA Compliance Regulations; it raises the penalties of health organizations which violate HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. The HITECH Act, a response to health technology development and increased use, storage and transmittal of electronic health info, warrants your attention. Partner with us; get the details!
