HIPAA and Privacy
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 was enacted Congress in 1996. The act was designed to protect private patient health information.
The HIPAA Privacy Rule regulates the use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI).
Any individual who believes that a violation of the HIPAA Privacy Rule has occurred can file a complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR).
HIPAA and Security
HIPAA compliance is monitored by Office for Civil Rights (OCR). The OCR receives and processes all HIPAA violations and complaints. In recent years, the OCR has increased its focus on information security and HIPAA Privacy compliance. Covered entities subject to HIPAA regulation should adhere to the following best practices:
Entities should regularly assess potential risks and vulnerabilities to the electronic PHI.
Covered entities and Business associates should keep Electronic Health Record (HER) software up to date and should regularly apply security patches.
HIPPA policies should be incorporated in organizational processes, and periodically reviewed and revised as necessary.
