HIPAA compliance is serious business.
Few industries are experiencing the sweeping changes that healthcare is currently undergoing. There's a rapid movement of health records online so that they can be more efficiently shared; but as providers and their business associates go online, there's a responsibility to keep protected health information (PHI) secure.
Now is the time to step up your efforts.
According to Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, recent years have not been good for healthcare information security, as an estimated 10.3 million patient records were compromised due to data theft and loss in 2013 and 2014 alone. With its Security Rule and Privacy Rule, HIPAA provides the framework of baseline requirements to ensure the protection of PHI.
If your organization works with PHI, now is the time to step up your security vigilance and tighten your compliance-oriented processes. Becoming HIPAA compliant is an important start.
