HIPAA IT & Security Compliance

With healthcare organizations moving increasingly to electronic means of storing Protected Health Information (PHI), protecting patient data becomes a much more important task for IT organizations. This is a difficult and complex job due to the rapidly growing number of diverse technologies used for processing and storing ePHI. Each Electronic Health Record (EHR) or Electronic Medical Record (EMR) has its requirements around protecting sensitive data. Components influencing this protection are as follows:

  • Numerous regulations governing patient data protection
  • Strict fines for failure to report breaches quickly
  • Highly customized EHR/EMR applications
  • Poorly defined and/or complex regulatory requirements
  • Limited in-house compliance expertise related to information security
  • Establishing meaningful use in order to receive federal funding
