Information about HIPAA Security Assessment

What is HIPAA Security Assessment?

Challenges associated with HIPAA Security Assessments and Risk Analysis are growing. Our Team of InfoSight Inc. experts will tell you: there is no substitute for an active, integrated, fully functional HIPAA Compliance Program firmly anchored, and a well-developed Culture of Compliance. HIPAA sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Entities dealing with protected health information (PHI), must either implement physical, network, and process security measures, or face heavy fines.

The HIPAA Security Rule, and HIPAA Compliance Regulations, define requirements to continuously secure electronic protected health information (EPHI) as it travels the Healthcare system. Healthcare entities,, providers, payers, and clearinghouses, must protect EPHI. InfoSight Inc. offers HIPAA Security Assessment guidance which helps enforce administrative procedures, technical security mechanisms, services, physical safeguards, ensuring HIPAA Compliance and Assessment/Analysis which catches new systems coming online, and also changes in existing systems.

InfoSight Inc. understands HIPAA Security Assessment, and will host your data; 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, thereby making your HIPAA Security Assessment necessary. The HITECH Act, a response to health technology development and increased use, storage and transmittal of electronic health info, warrants your attention.
