- HIPAA SECURITY STANDARDS
In 1996, the US government passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which laid out standards for protecting health care information. And supplemental legislation was added to this act to bring it up to date with current needs. These collectively are known as HIPAA rules (Health Information Portability and Accountability.
To ensure security and compliance with federal regulations, the Unified Communication system must be designed to comply with applicable standards for secure messaging. The software should also be compatible with all systems that require compliance with HIPAA. In 2009, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act expanded HIPAA.
HIPAA establishes federal standards to protect the privacy of PHI. HIPAA outlines requirements for health care providers, insurers, and other entities that handle protected health information (PHI).
As stated on the HHS HIPAA page, the Security Rule requires covered entities to maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for protecting electronic PHI. Specifically, covered entities must:
1.1. Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit;
1.2. Identify and protect against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information;
1.3. Protect against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures; and
1.4. Ensure compliance by their workforce.
