HIPAA Healthcare Compliance Services

Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

The goal of the HIPAA is to simplify the administrative processes of the healthcare system and to protect patientsí privacy. Information security considerations are involved throughout the guidelines and play a major role in the Privacy Rule of HIPAA compliance. The purpose of this rule is to protect personally identifiable information (PII) as it moves through the healthcare system. Healthcare organizations, including providers, payers and clearinghouses, must comply with the Privacy Rule.

To help healthcare organizations comply with the Privacy Rule, Security Standards have been created to help organizations protect PII. These standards encompass administrative procedures, technical security mechanisms and services, and physical safeguards. Security standards compliance and overall HIPAA compliance outlined by the Act is imperative to the ongoing business operations of healthcare companies. Failure to comply may not only result in regulatory actions, such as fines, but also direct business loss from lawsuits, damage to reputation and degradation of the publicís trust.
