What is HIPAA?

HIPAA relates to “The HIPAA Privacy Rule” which established national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other individually identifiable health information (collectively defined as “protected health information”). This is applicable to covered entities such as health plans, health care clearinghouses, and those health care providers that conduct certain health care transactions electronically. In addition this is also applied to business associates who handle protected health information on behalf of covered entities.

Safeguards Protect Privacy

The Rule requires appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of protected health information. It sets limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures that may be made of such information without an individual’s authorization.

Rights Over PHI

HIPAA also gives individuals rights over their protected health information. It gives rights to examine and get access to their PHI, to direct a covered entity to transmit to a third party an electronic copy of their protected health information in an electronic health record, and to request corrections. Much discussion is ongoing related to this important topic.

HIPAA Privacy Rule

HIPAA Compliance Defined

Regulatory compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a specification, policy, standard or law. Compliance in health care describes the intent organizations have to take steps to comply with relevant laws, policies, and regulations. HIPAA Compliance deals with the intentions organizations have to follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule in safeguarding protected health information.

To achieve HIPAA Compliance an organization must create a functional HIPAA compliance plan. This includes the implementation of HIPAA documentation such as policies and procedures, completion of HIPAA training with annual updates and the conduction of a Security Risk Analysis. Please go to our section on “What is HIPAA” to learn more.
