HIPAA ABCs

What is HIPAA?

HIPAA or the The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act was enacted in 1996 to improve the efficiency of the healthcare system, and includes administrative simplification provisions.  It is meant to protect individually identifiable health information.  It is comprised of several rules.

The Privacy Rule

It sets standards for the protection of PHI by the three types of covered entities who conduct standard healthcare transactions (or bill) electronically. These are health care providers, health plans and health care clearinghouses.

The Security Rule

This rule sets national standards for protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic protected health information or EPHI. The enforcement rule provides standards for the enforcement of all the administrative simplification rules. This includes penalties that may be applied to covered entities for non-compliance with HIPAA.

Omnibus HIPAA Rule

HHS enacted a final Omnibus rule that implements a number of provisions of the health information technology for economic and clinical Health Act or HITECH to the HIPAA privacy and security protections for PHI. The breach notification rule requires covered entities and their business associates to provide notification following a breach of an individual’s unsecured PHI.

HITECH – Breach Notification Rule

This rule requires covered entities and their business associates to provide breach notices.

HIPAA Compliance Defined

Regulatory compliance means conforming to a rule, such as a policy, standard or law. Compliance in health care refers to the steps taken to abide by the laws and regulations. HIPAA Compliance deals with the efforts to follow the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The intent is to safeguard protected health information.
 
To achieve compliance an organization must create a  compliance plan that includes HIPAA training with annual updates.
