HIPAA Compliance is a vital standard for safeguarding sensitive patient data. Companies that handle protected health information (PHI) must ensure they have the necessary physical, network, and process security measures in place and followed. Covered entities include those who provide healthcare treatment, payment, and operations.
At the same time, business associates also have access to patient information and provide support for treatment, payment, or procedures.
To enforce HIPAA Compliance requirements, The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was passed in 2009, which increases penalties for health organizations that violate HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules. The HITECH Act responds to the need for health technology development and increased electronic health information use, storage, and transmission.
