The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was established to protect patients in the U.S and improve nationwide access to and coverage for healthcare. In keeping with these objectives, regulations (outlined in the HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security Rule) were developed to protect the privacy and security of certain health information.
Today, healthcare organizations face the daunting task of securing vast quantities of electronic protected health information (ePHI) while also maintaining data accessibility for healthcare professionals who need it. Since data is shared across many unique networks, platforms, electronic health records (EHRs), and databases, it is more important than ever to understand exactly where ePHI and PII are located. Healthcare organizations have an obligation to their patients, community, partners and their own organizations to maintain HIPAA compliance and prevent health data breaches.
