Project Description

HIPAA Compliance

See a demo

Patient privacy and confidentiality are treated with the utmost care, and 21st-century healthcare organizations must address related concerns in a uniform, repeatable manner. This includes using HIPAA compliance software to meet requirements while simultaneously increasing efficiency. Use a HIPAA risk assessment to identify and prevent noncompliance and associated consequences.

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. It is broken into five sections, or titles:

  • Title I – Protects an individual’s health insurance coverage when he/she leaves or is let go by a company
  • Title II – Requires that certain standards/procedures be followed in order to preserve patient confidentiality. Includes five subsections:
    • Privacy Rule
    • Transactions and Code Sets Rule
    • Security Rule
    • Unique Identifiers Rule
    • Enforcement Rule
  • Title III – Outlines how much one person may save in a pre-tax medical account
  • Title IV – Addresses group plans and coverage for preexisting conditions
  • Title V – Relates to company-owned life insurance, citizenship, residence, and expatriation taxes

HIPAA applies to any organization classified as a “covered entity.” Covered entities include:

  1. Health plans
  2. Healthcare clearing houses
  3. Healthcare providers

Here’s Why HIPAA Compliance Can Be a Challenge

Healthcare recordkeeping is moving full speed ahead, and will soon be entirely paperless. Few hospitals and insurance offices still keep hard copies of patient files safely guarded behind lock and key. The shift to electronic health records (EHR) has brought many benefits: greater efficiency, wider access, and seamless communication between practitioners and provider networks.

However, by putting information (once only exposed to physical threats such as break-ins or fires) in digital format, we open an entire new realm of threats that must be mitigated. Faulty hardware, insufficient authentication, inadequate backups, and unintentional disclosures are now pervasive threats across all health care and service providers.

An increasingly competitive landscape and higher overhead costs have made allocating resources to HIPAA compliance more challenging, while a single slipup or infraction can have resounding effects.

LogicManager’s HIPAA compliance software comes preloaded with checklists, frameworks, and templates to ensure threats are managed. These include:

Health information is lucrative for criminals, as it is a goldmine of personally identifiable information that can be used to carrying out identity theft and fraud. LogicManager’s risk-based process allows for organizations to see the whole picture: what they are doing well and where they need to mature. Sharing information and best practices allows HIPAA compliance to be addressed with a unified strategy rather than dozens of siloed point solutions, all ineffectively trying to accomplish the same goal.
