Medical Privacy in Georgia, as in other States, is taking on a whole new urgency, as the HIPAA non-compliance and HIPAA violations are prosecuted and reported on front pages. Under HIPAA, all covered entities, physicians, nursing homes, health insurance companies, clearinghouses, Business Associates and their sub-contractors, must safeguard and protect personally identifying patient health information, written and electronic, by observing the well laid out rules. Non-protection of patient data, will result in high civil/criminal penalties, and disrupt your business operations.
The HIPAA rules for Medical Privacy in Georgia spell out responsibilities, and they include training of the workforce, on the use, storage, and retrieval of patient data.

A Supplemental Act was passed in 2009 called The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Ac; it supports the enforcement of HIPAA requirements, by raising the penalties of health organizations that violate HIPAA Medical Privacy and Security Rules. The HITECH Act is a response to health technology development, and increased use, storage and transmittal of electronic health information.
