Who Does HIPAA Affect?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) includes a set of privacy and security rules enforcing secure patient data storage and management practices. Established by the U.S. government to uphold regulatory standards in the healthcare industry, HIPAA positively impacts patients by protecting their electronically-housed health information and keeping it safe from cyber threats.
HIPAA does not include health organizations only. Any company involved in processing, maintaining, or storing patient data, medical records, and other personally identifiable information (PHI) is also subject to HIPAA. According to HIPAA rules, the following groups of entities must achieve compliance:
Covered Entities (CE).
This group includes all organizations providing health care treatment, payment, or operations, such as health care providers, health care clearinghouses, and health insurance providers.
Any organization providing support and IT services to a CE is considered a Business Associate (BA). This group includes billing companies, IT providers, cloud providers, consultants, management firms, etc.
Why HIPAA Matters for your Healthcare Business
Healthcare service providers are frequent targets for cyberattacks. It is estimated that the industry loses $10 million in cyber breaches every year, far more than other sectors.
By failing to comply with HIPAA standards, healthcare service providers and their business partners increase their chances of being breached. Failing to secure properly sensitive patient records and personal information can result in severe penalties and your clients losing confidence in your company. Moreover, government imposed penalties for non-compliance can be a significant burden on your budget.
If you or your clients maintain medical data, you need to secure your infrastructure and systems according to HIPAA regulations. Without proper protection, you risk paying significant fines or even losing your customers.
Protecting healthcare with top technologies available.
