Does Your IT Solution Meet HIPAA Compliance Requirements?
by Twinstate Technologies
HIPAA compliance requirements mean that technology teams must keep Protected Health Information (PHI) secure and confidential. While HIPAA compliance tells companies that they must keep PHI secure, the rule doesn’t explicitly state how to go about doing so. Technology teams are only given factors to consider when approaching their security infrastructure; cost, capabilities and the overall risk of violating HIPAA are just a few examples. In order to meet HIPAA compliance requirements, technology teams must take into account several aspects of the rule and evaluate if they can be within compliance while still empowering the entity (hospital, doctor, etc.) to meet customer needs.
