HIPAA Compliance & RightFax
Fines from a HIPAA violation or data breach can carry the power to incapacitate an entire organization with long-lasting consequences.
What is the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is US federal legislation that was enacted in 1996. Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, are meant to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation’s healthcare system by encouraging the widespread use of electronic data interchange in the U.S. healthcare system.
Below, learn more about the main components of HIPAA and what it covers:
Protected Health Information
PHI is any information which concerns a patient’s health status, the provision of healthcare or the payment for healthcare or health services that can be linked to an individual.
The Security Rule
This rule requires appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to ensure the integrity, confidentiality and security of electronic PHI.
The Privacy Rule
This rule addresses the use and disclosure of individuals’ PHI by organizations subject to the Rule or “covered entities,” as well as standards for individuals’ privacy rights.
Remember, failure to comply with HIPAA can result in civil and criminal penalties ranging from $100 per violation to $1.5 million annually. However, your organization can reduce its risk of fines by leveraging a secure fax server solution like RightFax to properly handle PHI.
