Achieving comprehensive HIPAA compliance

The experts at Concord Compliance have the experience and knowledge to provide comprehensive HIPAA compliance solutions.

Understanding the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)

The Health Insurance and Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that applies stringent protocols around how patient medical information – also known as protected health information (PHI) – is stored, accessed, and transmitted.

HIPAA consists of four key components that make it important both for patients and any entity that maintains, accesses, or transmits PHI.

Key Components of HIPAA:

Privacy of Health Data

HIPAA requires that any individual who wishes to access, view, maintain, or transmit patient PHI first requires consent from the patient.

It’s often challenging for businesses to meet this HIPAA requirement as organizations grow and PHI is distributed between business units to meet business operations.

Security of Health Data

HIPAA requires that healthcare entities must follow specific security protocols and administrative procedures to ensure that any health data that is created, stored, maintained, or transmitted is kept secure at all times.

As organizations grow, different business units of geo-regions may employ different security measures to keep PHI safe, leading to an increased security risk.

Notification of Data Breaches

HIPAA requires healthcare organizations and any other entity maintaining patient PHI to notify patients when health data is compromised or stolen.

Often, businesses are unaware they’ve sustained a breach before it’s too late, making it challenging to notify patients of a data breach.

Copies of Medical Records

HIPAA requires healthcare organizations or any other entity holding healthcare information to be accessible to patients upon request.

Ineffective patient access portals and internal systems can lead to patients not receiving their medical records upon request.
