What is HIPAA Compliance?
Before discussing the elements of our HIPAA compliance checklist, it is best to answer the question “What is HIPAA compliance?” HIPAA compliance involves fulfilling the requirements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, its subsequent amendments, and any related legislation such as the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
Typically the question following “What is HIPAA compliance?” is “What are the HIPAA compliance requirements?” That question is not so easy to answer as – in places – the requirements of HIPAA are intentionally vague. This is so HIPAA can be applied equally to every different type of Covered Entity or Business Associate that comes into contact with Protected Health Information (PHI). We are happy to explain how HIPAA may apply to your organization and determine how our services may be of value to you. For questions, call the number below.
