Every day, healthcare providers are using more sophisticated technology and applications to provide modern healthcare services to patients. From organizations that generate PHI to the organizations that handle PHI, patients' protected health information is constantly moving and exchanging hands. This critical cycle that facilitates our healthcare system requires consistent and effective information security management.
The Security Rule of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) were designed to address these challenges by provisioning security standards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and security of electronic protected health information. BitSpartan helps organizations meet the requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule by providing risk assessments and security services around this rule.
