Merging your IT needs with HIPAA Requirements

Running a small or medium-sized business is stressful. Things can get even more stressful if your business is in the healthcare field and needs to be in compliance with the rules of HIPAA or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. This federal legislation provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. This Act is balanced so that it provides needed information to health care providers for patient care, but also provides patients certain rights to that personal information.   So, if your healthcare business is upgrading its technology, merging with another company, moving offices, or just changing networks, how can you manage your IT needs with the compliance rules of the HIPAA Act and SRA (Security Risk Assessment)? Remember that this act is not just protecting the type of data that is communicated, but also the security of the databases and data that contains that sensitive information within a healthcare business.
