While the HIPAA Privacy Rule covers protected health information (PHI) in all forms, the HIPAA Security Rule specifically applies only to PHI that is maintained, transformed, or transmitted in electronic form (e-PHI). The Security Rule requires covered entities to meet specific objectives and presents major challenges for virtually every covered entity in the HIPAA environment, no matter how big or small. Covered entities include health plans, health care clearinghouses, and healthcare providers. In addition, business partners and associates who interact with covered entities are forced to deal with the same security issues as covered entities. IT professionals, like you, know the amount of work involved in supporting HIPAA compliance. The members of your IT team have enough on their plates without assuming the role of HIPAA police, but the team can also appreciate that adding technologies for HIPAA Security Rule compliance is an opportunity to make improvements in overall IT security that increases the organization’s bottom line. Read this white paper, including results from the HIMSS 2010 Security Survey, to learn how to fulfill HIPAA Security Rule requirements and improve overall control and performance of your IT infrastructure.
