InfoSight Inc.'s Team for HITECH in Georgia covers HIPAA/HITECH Security Rule requirements in 3 categories: Administrative, Physical/Technical Safeguards. Within these categories, are 18 standards, and 36 implementation specifications, which are either “Required” or “Addressable”. Required ones are critical; they must be implemented. Addressable ones are scalable, based on individual needs. The Security Rule focuses on safeguarding of electronic Protected Health Information (e-PHI) under HITECH.

While the Security and Privacy Rule share the common goal of safeguarding Protected Health Information (PHI), the Privacy Rule applies to all media types: paper, oral, and electronic. The Privacy Rule requires organizations to consider the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI. Procedures need to be in place, to address the use and disclosure of PHI, notice of privacy practices, and the minimum necessary approach to PHI; HITECH Georgia sets out the details. Neglecting HITECH Georgia, can disrupt your business.
