Understanding HIPAA requirements for safeguarding PHI

Meeting the legal requirements required of a healthcare provider hinges on and depends directly on a clear grasp of HIPAA compliance requirements. A thorough grasp of HIPAA compliance entails being fully equipped with all the knowledge needed to put the proper policies and procedures in place. This is because providing the appropriate patient rights and controls on the uses and disclosures of Protected Health Information (PHI) is one of the hallmarks of being in compliance with HIPAA.

So, any organization that is being audited or is the subject of a compliance review has to show to the government that it not only has the ability to demonstrate how it is addressing all of the required security safeguards; but that it also has the documentation necessary for safeguarding patient PHI.

Knowledge of the fundamentals is necessary

Solid grasp of HIPAA compliance requirements is necessary on the part of a healthcare practice, business or organization to understand all that it takes for protecting PHI. Complete and thorough understanding of the fundamentals of HIPAA compliance requirements is a must for an entity that has to ensure that the safeguards it currently has are good enough to withstand government scrutiny.

This is necessary for HIPAA implementation’s own sake; further, there is another major reason why healthcare practices, businesses or organizations need to have very sound knowledge of the HIPAA requirements. It is the significant rise in the number of HIPAA data breaches. Only a proper understanding HIPAA compliance requirements help entities understand which requirements they need to meet in order to safeguard PHI.
