Health Care Data Protection
The HIPAA HITECH Act Requires Patient Data Security
The adoption of Electronic Health Records (EHR) and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems along with the evolving compliance requirements add to the challenge of ensuring the security of healthcare data. The decentralization & consumerization of IT now permits your patient data on shared desktops, personal laptops, smart phones and even USB drives. This can and will put your organization at risk.
HIPAA/HITECH Regulatory Legislation with Mandatory Reporting
Federal and States Governments have signed laws and issued multiple regulations designed to protect personal and medical data of patients. HIPAA is the most powerful of them. Every clinic, every pharmacy, every HMO or PPO, every data processing company must comply with them. In addition to steep fines, some of these laws and regulations stipulate criminal liability.
The HITECH Act, devised by Congress primarily to address electronic medical records, is being noted for its impact in adding a tough data-breach notification requirement to the long list of long-existing Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
With the increasing threat of medical identity theft looming and expanding state/federal/industry regulations regarding data security, healthcare organizations are taking steps to prevent loss or exposure of sensitive patient data.
