HIPAA / HITECH Assessment
How to Simplify and Document HIPAA/HITECH Compliance
Back in 1996, President Bill Clinton signed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) into law, providing data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.
In response to the many digital advancements we’ve enjoyed since 1996, HIPAA is now joined by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which defines the policies, procedures, and processes required to safeguard electronic protected health information (ePHI).
With the regulatory oversight from these two pieces of legislation expanding by the day, it is becoming increasingly critical to ensure compliance in a documented, replicable manner.
