HIPAA Security Module

HIPAA Security Module

Complete Policies and Procedures Package - Security

It is not enough simply to know and follow the security rules and regulations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. A simple text message about a patient or someone with protected information can be a violation. Security compliance is mandated separately from privacy. Not only must information be kept private, it must be kept securely and protected from breach. The HIPAA Security Mandates cannot be waived. And you must prove compliance to auditors.

Note that healthcare professionals are no longer alone here: Business Associates not accustomed to these heightened security requirements are at high risk here.
