Information about HIPAA Requirements

What is HIPAA Requirements?

Consider using our highly rated Company to ensure that you meet HIPAA Requirements; avoid regulatory risks and huge fines! In the absence of HIPAA Auditing, dangers and fines are sure to result. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.

Dramatic changes are taking place to secure Protected Health Information (PHI); the importance of HIPAA Requirements is growing. 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. Part of this new law, the HITECH Act, includes breach notification requirements, for all covered entities under HIPAA.

Our InfoSight Compliance and Security Specialist urges you to view HIPAA Requirements as crucial, and to use InfoSight Inc. to perform your Risk Assessment, focusing on your technology, people, environment, and processes, across seven security domains; Management and Policy, Access Control, Authentication, Awareness, Content Security, Threat Management, and Encryptio, 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 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 Requirements, and enhance your compliance record. The program, started in 2011, ends in 2015. Use us, InfoSight Inc.!
