HIPAA Compliance

Navigating the challenges of PHI Security & Privacy

Information security and privacy in healthcare is complicated. There are several layers of healthcare providers, office managers and staff, as well as medical devices and computers. The industry is at a crossroads and it is becoming more complex with time.

Understanding Compliance and Information Security

The handling of protected health information (PHI) is directly impacted by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). Gaining a full understanding of these regulations and how they impact an organization can be challenging. That is where Integrity can help.

Beyond a basic knowledge of compliance, it is equally important to understand security and privacy and how the two work together. Our team assists clients by helping them understand the demands of each regulation and how they affect every decision. You can rely on Integrity to help you navigate the challenges presented by the security and privacy standards of the healthcare industry. It is a common misconception that compliance equals security. That is simply not true. Compliance is merely an element in an information security program and should be treated as such.

As the demand for healthcare information continues to rise, it is imperative that organizations be prepared to swiftly adapt to healthcare security and privacy changes. Integrity’s team of compliance experts understands the demands of the public and private healthcare sectors, and are prepared to assist in carrying out initiatives set by our clients.
