What is HIPAA-HITECH?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and, by extension, the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Breach Notification requirements were enacted to ensure that privacy safeguards are in place for data that is collected, stored, processed or transmitted.

HIPAA-HITECH outlines auditing requirements and levies penalties against organizations whose information security systems are not in compliance with its standards to keep healthcare data secure from unauthorized access. If your company works with healthcare organizations, your information systems must provide a set of protocols and controls to keep Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) secure.

As part of your business operations, your organization may collect, store, transmit, or process sensitive information gathered from your customers. As a result, you will need to establish a set of security controls and objectives based on specific operations to handle risk management of this information. Your organization may voluntarily adopt ISO 27001 standards into your policies and procedures to keep this information secure.
