HIPAA Security

Complying with HIPAA Security Regulations Doesn't Have to Be Painful

HIPAA has become an inescapable part of life for businesses in the healthcare sector. For HIPAA covered entities and their business associates, the risks of non-compliance with HIPAA security regulations are too big to ignore, particularly with the passage of the 2009 HITECH Act which tightened HIPAA enforcement and increased non-compliance penalties. If your organization is a covered entity or business associate, you have to comply with HIPAA security regulations – but becoming and staying HIPAA compliant doesn't have to hurt.

HIPAA Security Requirements

The high-level requirements of HIPAA security compliance are outlined in the HIPAA Security Rule developed by the Department of Health & Human Services. The HIPAA Security Rule aims to protect electronic personally identifiable health information, and specifically the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of such information. Toward this end the HIPAA security regulations mandate a comprehensive set of safeguards that IT organizations must implement in order to achieve IT HIPAA compliance. These include:

  • Administrative safeguards such as periodic risks assessments, documented security procedures, and employee training programs.
  • Physical safeguards to restrict access to facilities, computers, and storage media.
  • Technical safeguards such as network access controls, data integrity controls, and encryption.

Options for Meeting HIPAA Security Requirements

Covered entities and business associates have three broad options for meeting HIPAA security requirements for their IT systems and operations:

  • Achieve and maintain ongoing HIPAA security compliance on your own, with your own people in your own facilities.
  • Bring in consultants to your facilities to help with HIPAA compliance.
  • Have your HIPAA-regulated IT workloads hosted off-premise by a HIPAA compliant hosting service.

Of these HIPAA compliance solutions, using the right compliant hosting service is the one that most completely relieves you of the HIPAA burden.
