About HIPAA Compliance

Physical safeguards of HIPAA

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and is a series of regulatory laws – outlining the lawful use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI). The main intent of HIPAA policies was to enhance the operations of healthcare industry by reducing costs, simplifying administrative processes, and maintaining the privacy and security of patient health information. However, HIPAA compliance ended up revolving around maintaining the privacy and security of patient’s health information.

HIPAA Compliance Management, Implementation, Audit

HIPAA compliance for an organization is meant to protect the privacy and security of Protected Health Information (PHI) that an organization has access to. PHI is any such information that is connected to health condition of an individual/patient. Organizations that look forward to comply with the HIPAA regulations must first determine the regulations they have to comply with. The 2 distinct and separate regulations under HIPAA are:

HIPAA Privacy

Safeguards the protected health information safe from a person, administrative, and contractual standpoint.

HIPAA Security

Safeguards the protected health information specifically in electronic form against any disasters, hackers, and electronic theft.

All organizations are required to comply with the HIPAA Privacy regulations, since Privacy involves safeguards from a people standpoint, but only those who store or transmit protected health information electronically are required to comply with the HIPAA Security regulations which is meant to protect electronic data. Once you know which regulations you need to comply with, then it is just a matter of understanding what you need to do to comply.

Administrative Safeguards

The administrative safeguards play a significant role when implementing a HIPAA compliance program. You are required to:

  • Assign a privacy officer
  • Complete a risk assessment annually
  • Implement employee training
  • Review procedures and policies
  • Execute Business Associate Agreements (BAA) with all the partners who have access to Protected Health Information (PHI)
