Information about HIPAA Compliance Requirements

What is HIPAA Compliance Requirements?

As a Healthcare entity, getting your HIPAA Compliance Requirements correct is crucial; consider using our highly rated Company, to conduct your HIPAA Audit, and avoid regulatory risks and huge fines! In the absence of adherence to HIPAA requirements, dangers and fines are sure to result. HIPAA, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must put in place, and follow, physical, network, and process security measures.

Dramatic changes are taking place to secure Protected Health Information (PHI); HIPAA Compliance Requirements and Audit are growing in importance. The HIPAA Security Rule has been in effect since 2003. In 2009, Health and Human Services (HHS) added “business associate” to entities that must comply with the HIPAA Act of 1996. In 2009, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) was signed into law. This new law, the HITECH Act, includes breach notification requirements, for HIPPA covered entities.

Our InfoSight Specialist urges you to use our guidance on HIPAA Compliance Requirements, Audit preparation, and Risk Assessment, focusing on your technology, people, environment, and processes, across seven security domains; Management/Policy, Access Control, Authentication, Awareness, Content Security, Threat Management, and Encryption, using forty-three (43) threat agents representing internal/external events that may disrupt your processes and activities.

Healthcare providers receive financial incentives to upgrade Electronic Health Records (EHR) systems or purchase EHR systems, which deliver a secure set of electronic services in keeping with the HITECH Act, a provision of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). This can strengthen preparation for your HIPAA Audit, and enhance your HIPPA Compliance Requirements record. The program, started in 2011, ends in 2015.
