HIPAA Security Rule Quick Start Tool Kit
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 mandated that the privacy of individually identifiable health information was protected, whether in verbal, paper, or electronic format. The original law was divided into various rules: Privacy, Security, Breach Notification, and Enforcement. HIPAA’s Security Rule intersects with the Privacy Rule, providing protection of electronic health information. As electronic technology advanced, the risks to health information privacy increased, and strengthening of the Enforcement Rule followed. Highlighting the importance of HIPAA Security, this Quick Start Tool Kit outlines the regulatory history of HIPAA’s Security Rule and all of its standards. Everything from the Security Risk Analysis to the content of a Business Associate Contract is covered. Members of The Compliance Store can download the PDF, which links you to all of the fully-editable MS Word policies and self-assessment tools that will help you comply with the Security Rule!
