The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted in 1996. Organizations that must comply with HIPAA include:
HIPAA compliance requirements consist of a set of technical safeguards to secure the privacy of Protected Health Information (PHI) and ePHI (electronic PHI). Your ability to comply effectively with these safeguards is largely dependent on your network infrastructure. Technical safeguards mandated by HIPAA include:
FileCloud allows you to share documents from any device, sync across devices, and manage access to files and documents. Organizations can self-host data on a private server. Get total control over ePHI and other sensitive data using the FileCloud on-premises server.
With FileCloud, users can seamlessly comply with HIPAA regulations for document life cycle management. FileCloud makes data governance user-friendly. Automate privacy-related processes and workflows, while securing your ePHI with ease.
Configure a session timeout on the console port after a specified period of idle time to automatically log users out of the system. You can specify the period of inactivity prior to session expiration using the FileCloud console.
Under HIPAA, ePHI resources on devices must be protected using reasonable measures to secure patient data. FileCloud enables admins to set password strength and complexity standards, and allows them to specify the number of login attempts before user lockout.
There are three central HIPAA compliance rules:.
HIPAA Privacy Rule – This addresses the risk of PHI being compromised and requires appropriate safeguards to be put in place to protect individuals’ privacy. It also defines limits and conditions on the use and disclosure of individuals’ PHI without their authorization. Individuals also have the right to examine and obtain a copy of their PHI, request corrections, and direct the transmission of ePHI to a third party.
HIPAA Security Rule – This rule focuses on maintaining standards to protect individuals’ ePHI held by covered entities. It requires entities to establish administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and security of ePHI.
Breach Notification Rule – This rule requires covered entities to notify patients and other relevant parties in the event of unauthorized use or disclosure of ePHI that compromises its privacy and security. Entities must notify relevant parties of a breach within 60 days of its occurrence. This rule applies even if the entity is unsure whether the ePHI has been compromised. Depending on the size of the breach, relevant parties can include a mainstream media outlet and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
The following are some of the most common HIPAA violations:
