The U.S. passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in 1996. HIPAA compliance regulations were put into place to ensure patient data- any event entity that handles PHI- has measures and protocols in place to prevent and protect this sensitive information and restrict access only to those authorized.
Violations of HIPAA can include both civil fines and, in the case of willful violations, criminal penalties. These fines depend on the amount of information affected by the violation and the level of culpability for the violation. Civil penalties range from $100 per violation for when it occurred despite taking reasonable measures to prevent it, to $50,000 per violation when it occurred in willful disregard of HIPAA’s mandates.
The basics of HIPAA compliance regulations
Personal Health Information, or PHI, needs to be secure and regulations state a patient has rights to view and make any corrections to their own PHI.
This PHI must be kept securely and protected from physical and cyber theft.
If a cyber event does take place, it is your company’s responsibility to alert and inform all individuals with compromised PHI.
