HIPAA SECURITY OVERVIEW
HIPAA Overview

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Title I of HIPAA governs portability of health benefits, special enrollment rights, and non-discrimination rules. Title II, Subtitle F of HIPAA governs "Administrative Simplification."

The Administrative Simplification Rules are intended to create a uniform system for processing, retaining, and securing health care information by encouraging the use of electronic technology, mandating standardization of health-related transactions, and ensuring the security and privacy of health information.

Most covered entities were mandated to comply by April 21, 2005. In the final Security Rule there are three main components which you will need to address:

  • Administrative Safeguards
  • Physical Safeguards
  • Technical Safeguards

The regulation outlines a realistic model for security management that is flexible. However, covered entities should not take the flexibility provisions of the rule as a reason to ignore security.

Where Should You Begin?

A covered entity should perform an initial risk analysis to assess the state of security for that facility. View this whitepaper to learn more.
