The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or HIPAA protects confidential patient information and applies to all healthcare providers transmitting protected health information (PHI) and electronic protected health information (ePHI). Medical websites that store or send patient and personal data must do so through a HIPAA compliant setup. Often, the consequences of the loss or compromise of this data could damage a client’s reputation, if not even more serious legal ramifications.
HIPAA is an unusual law that makes a lot of recommendations and a few assertions (required items). Do you have the right deliverables on your checklist to ensure that your website meets the requirements of HIPAA compliance?
