HIPAA Security Compliance

The Requirements of HIPAA Security Compliance

HIPAA security compliance has become an unavoidable part of doing business for a wide variety of organizations in the healthcare sector, including care providers, insurers, clearinghouses, and SaaS vendors. Since non-compliance can be very costly, it's incumbent on each impacted business to understand the general requirements of HIPAA security compliance and to develop a strategy for achieving and maintaining compliance.

HIPAA Security Compliance: The Security Rule

HIPAA security compliance is governed by the HIPAA "Security Rule", developed by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services as part of its implementation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The aim of the Security Rule is to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of individually identifiable health information that is stored, processed, or transmitted in electronic form.

At a high level, compliance to HIPAA requires that organizations handling electronic health information implement:

  • Administrative safeguards – including documented security policies and procedures, and ongoing workforce training.
  • Physical safeguards – including measures to secure access to facilities, computer hardware, and storage media.
  • Technical safeguards – including logical access controls, data integrity controls, audit controls, and transmission security.
  • Ongoing risk evaluation and risk remediation.

To a large extent, the burden of determining how high-level HIPAA compliance guidelines apply to specific circumstances falls on the regulated organizations. While some organizations pursue HIPAA security compliance by taking on the onerous task of assessing, implementing, documenting, monitoring, auditing, and regularly updating the security systems and procedures necessary to remain HIPAA compliant, others take the much simpler path of contracting a HIPAA compliant hosting service to host their applications that involve regulated health data.
