Any U.S. organization maintaining or transmitting electronic protected health information, commonly known as ePHI, must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
A Prescription for Security & Privacy
HIPAA established rules around protecting the security and privacy of sensitive patient data. Trustwave can help you respond to the regulation's guiding principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI).
HIPAA: Fast Facts and Consequences
HIPAA features three components related to data protection: the Security Rule, the Privacy Rule and the Breach Notification Rule.
The maximum civil fine is $50,000 per violation, up to a maximum of $1.5 million per violation category, with the Office of Civil Rights within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services collecting some $20 million in fines and settlements in 2017.
HIPAA requires "covered entities," which include hospitals, pharmacies, group health plans and individual provider offices, and their third-party "business associates" to deploy technical controls to prepare for audits and protect sensitive ePHI.
The HITECH Act of 2009 is a distinct law from HIPAA, but the two overlap and reinforce each other in certain ways.
