The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a standard for regulating medical records. It regulates medical records privacy and other associated issues such as system administrative and protected health information (PHI) electronic security standards. HIPAA also includes the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act which safeguards access by third parties to a patient’s personally identifiable information. These standards and regulations have made compliance and control of information security risks even more complex for private healthcare providers.
To operate in full compliance with HIPAA/HITECH regulations, your healthcare IT security system must prove that it protects the patient’s privacy. It should also address all the potential vulnerabilities and risks in your system at a cost-effective way.

Our certified information security professionals are well versed with the HIPAA and HITECH standards.
