(HIPPA) Requirements

HIPPA Requirements What is

"If your company or customers deal with sensitive patient data, you must be HIPAA compliant. WTG can help."

What Is HIPPA ?

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, which was enacted by Congress to protect sensitive patient data. The act contains a “Privacy Rule” and a “Security Rule,” which in turn protect the privacy, and sets standards for the security of electronic protected health information (e-PHI). Taken together, these rules establish national standards for how companies working with sensitive patient data must ensure that data’s confidentiality, availability, and integrity.

What Is HITECH ?

HITECH stands for the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act and was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. HITECH is a dramatic update of the HIPAA Security Rule that more clearly outlines the things that companies that work with e-PHI must be doing with that health data. It sets clear guidelines for proper interaction with health information, expands the liabilities of companies that are subject to oversight, increases fines for non-compliance, and enables more stringent enforcement.
