What is HIPAA ?

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which is a set of regulations concerning the handling of medical information, including privacy and security. The regulation requires that any companies handling healthcare data, from hospitals to insurance companies, must comply with HIPAA security standards when transmitting and storing electronic protected health information (ePHI).

Why you need HIPAA Compliance?

Compliance with HIPAA standards is required of all healthcare businesses due to the sensitive nature of information handled by these companies. A single cyber-attack on a health-related business can result in lost or stolen data that has broad ramifications on the health, safety and financial security of patients, and these attacks are becoming both more frequent and more aggressive. Failing to comply with HIPAA standards can result in severe consequences for healthcare businesses, including:

  • Reputational : The moment it’s revealed that a company’s information was hacked, that company’s reputation decreases. This is particularly true for healthcare businesses due to the sensitive nature of the information they carry. Such reputational damage can negatively impact future business and lose the trust of patients and partners alike.
  • Legal : Since HIPAA compliance is a federal requirement of all healthcare businesses, failure to comply with HIPAA requirements can result in severe fines. These fines multiply if a breach occurs as a result of HIPAA noncompliance. Patients may even sue the business because of their negligence.
  • Financial : Between the reputational and legal damage done to a healthcare organization due to HIPAA noncompliance, financial damages can be steep. Often, these damages are enough to bankrupt entire healthcare enterprises.

These factors mean HIPAA compliance is an absolute must. While these regulations won’t protect against all threats your healthcare business might face, they pose a strong baseline off of which your business can build. The first step, however, is to achieve HIPAA compliance.

FAQ

What is HIPAA compliance?

Who is required to become HIPAA compliant?

Any covered entity (CE) or business associate (BA) that stores, processes, transmits, maintains, or touches protected health information (PHI) in any way must be compliant.

Examples of covered entities include any healthcare service provider such as a hospital, pharmacy, or physician.

Examples of BAs are persons or entities that provide services to a CE that involve the disclosure of PHI, such as a medical records vendor, prosthetic manufacturer, or outside medical consultant.

How do I become HIPAA compliant?

Compliance will look a little different at every organization, but most entities will complete a risk analysis, create and complete a risk management plan, conduct regular employee training, and implement updated policies and procedures.

Who is responsible for HIPAA?

Both the healthcare organization and individual staff members who accesses PHI are responsible. The organization is responsible to put all necessary safeguards in place for HIPAA compliance. Every individual (office manager, doctor, etc.) is held responsible for health information they should, can, or do access. Individuals and companies can independently face criminal charges for mishandling PHI.

What’s the difference between the HIPAA Security and Privacy rules?

The HIPAA Privacy Rule addresses appropriate PHI use and disclosure practices by healthcare organizations. The same rules, regulations and policies that regulate Privacy do not necessarily extend to the Security Rule. The HIPAA Security Rule revolves around safeguarding the systems that house or transmit PHI.

Who enforces HIPAA compliance?

The Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) is the federal organization responsible for enforcing HIPAA compliance.

What happens if I don't become HIPAA compliant?

If you are found in violation of HIPAA, both the HHS and state attorney general’s can levy fines against you. In fact, the HHS assesses fees of up to $50,000 per day per violation.

If noncompliance leads to a breach, you are required by law to notify the HHS, your patients, and, if more than 500 records are involved, the media. This could severely damage brand equity and publicly embarrass your organization.

What is a HIPAA violation?

Each failure to follow one or more of the HIPAA standards, requirements, or implementation specifications is considered a violation. HIPAA violation examples: sharing passwords among nurses, not using an industry-standard firewall, and not encrypting emailed patient data are all separate violations.

What does it mean to have a HIPAA audit?

The HHS expects healthcare providers to actively work on their HIPAA compliance and tests them through organizational audits. An entity could be chosen for a HIPAA compliance audit at random, or because of a reported breach by an employee or customer. The best way to prepare for an audit is by having an aggressive and fully functional HIPAA compliance program already in place.

What should I do if I think PHI has been compromised at my organization?

Contact the HHS immediately following discovery of the breach, and they’ll tell you what to do next. You can report a breach here. See Breach Notification Rule protocols.

What is a business associate agreement? Do I need one?

A business associate agreement (BAA) is a contract required for any business associate that receives patient data from either a covered entity, or from another business associate. Covered entities and business associates are responsible for having proper business associate agreements in place. It’s their job to draft BAAs that meet their own requirements, as well as HIPAA requirements.

What is a HIPAA compliance certificate?

A HIPAA compliance certificate shows that you have completed all the necessary requirements your individual HIPAA consultant requires. Although this document doesn’t disqualify you for random HHS audits, it does show your willingness to make demonstrable progress towards HIPAA compliance.

What is your role in HIPAA compliance?
