How does IT play a role in HIPAA?

The field of health information management is changing rapidly due to the many new applications that are now commonly used. Some examples would include computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems, electronic health records, (EHR), and radiology, pharmacy, and laboratory systems. A major goal of the Security Rule is to protect the privacy of individuals health information while allowing covered entities to adopt new technologies to improve the quality and efficiency of patient care. IT personnel are in a key position to participate in the protection of electronic protected health information (ePHI) and allowing this technology to evolve. They will need to know the basics of the Security Rule to be effective.
