To get quality healthcare, people should not have to sacrifice the privacy or security of their personal health information. The set of regulations known as "HIPAA" ensures that private patient data remains private, but the laws can seem complex, and the penalties for non-compliance can be costly.
New HIPAA Rules and Compliance training products from ATLANTIC define HIPAA terms, explain the laws and discuss what business entities and employees in healthcare-related fields need to do to comply with them.
Topics covered in these products include:
Administrative safeguards are policies and procedures that limit access to EPHI. Technical safeguards protect the data storage and transmission systems that handle EPHI from inside computer systems and networks. Physical safeguards work from the outside. If a breach is suspected, HIPAA presumes that one has actually occurred unless the covered entity which is involved can demonstrate that there is a low probability that PHI was actually compromised. If it is determined that a breach has in fact occurred, the covered entity must inform patients of that fact.
