HIPAA Compliance

The HIPAA Conundrum

HIPAA compliance, privacy, security, breach notification, disclosures, audit protocols…has your mind already started to wander or did your ears perk up? While compliance rules and regulations aren’t high on most people’s list of exciting topics and can also be confusing and seem complicated, there is no question as to its necessity: It’s the law.

AHDI’s newly released
HIPAA Compliance Guide and HIPAA Compliance Quick Reference checklist, spells out the steps of HIPAA compliance in easy-to-understand language. Most people know the basics, but this guide explains the HITECH Act and Final Rule and it outlines the role of covered entities and business associates as well as compliance expectations of each. Going a step further, this guide discusses the process of risk analysis and the risks and penalties of noncompliance. Numerous resources are provided along with an example of how a small MTSO or IC can accomplish the steps necessary to become compliant in a short time.
