We can handle the planning and day-to-day management required to launch and run your IT applications in strict compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule and its extension, the HITECH Act.

HIPAA HITECH Compliance: The HIPAA Security Rule

IT systems that store, process, or transmit personally identifiable health information are subject to the HIPAA Security Rule. In short, IT HIPAA compliance as stipulated by the Security Rule requires that organizations implement and regularly update a series of safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic personal health data. These requirements for a HIPAA compliant data center include:

  • Administrative safeguards, such as designating a HIPAA compliance officer, developing and applying compliance policies and procedures, and training frontline personnel on HIPAA requirements.
  • Physical safeguards, including securing the facility, computer and network hardware, and physical storage media.
  • Technical safeguards, such as encrypting data in transit, applying logical access controls, and implementing data integrity checks.

HIPAA HITECH Compliance: The HITECH Extensions

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009 gave HIPAA more teeth and expanded its reach. With this new HIPAA HITECH compliance regime, major changes included:

  • An increase in civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance.
  • Enhanced enforcement mechanisms, including granting state Attorneys General the authority to take action on behalf of state residents in cases of HIPAA compliance failures.
  • The establishment of mandatory reporting requirements for security breaches.
  • The extension of HIPAA's scope such that healthcare providers' "business associates" (such as cloud software providers who store or process protected health information) are now directly subject to HIPAA HITECH compliance requirements and non-compliance penalties.
