HIPAA Compliance Requirements & EHR Security

Adhering to The Privacy Rule

Achieve HIPAA Compliance

Orange Compliance Checklist Icon

HIPAA, also known as The U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, mandates that all healthcare organizations comply with strict rules designed to protect the confidentiality and integrity of patient information.

HIPAA requires entities to have safeguards in place to protect against any reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security, unauthorized use, or disclosure of the information, and sets severe civil and criminal penalties for non-compliance with these regulations.

Penalties for violation of patient confidentiality standards include monetary fines of up to $25,000, and in some cases imprisonment.

Secure Patient Information

EHR Security Icon

For healthcare companies navigating the complex compliance requirements under HIPAA and the HITECH Act, one of the most daunting provisions has been adhering to The Privacy Rule. Applying encryption solutions that protect patient data from all but a defined set of uses – and within the proscribed EDI sets – has proven, for many, to be a significant IT challenge. An effective implementation must not only be secure and adhere to these transaction standards, but must also be manageable within the company’s IT framework.

As the healthcare industry faces the transition to electronic health records (EHRs), encryption technology will play a critical role in protecting sensitive patient data. SafeNet's data protection solutions secure sensitive data at rest, in transit, and in use, providing complete protection from cybersecurity threats.

EHR Security via SafeNet Encryption & Key Management:

  • SafeNet offers a secure, scalable, and cost-effective record encryption and key management solution that safeguards patient information, but also allows fine discrimination between types of transactions and users.

  • Strong encryption of data at the field, file, or device level through database encryption and disk & file encryption

  • Centralized control of role-based permissions for data access

  • Comprehensive key management for ease of administration

  • Can be applied to multiple systems and platforms
