HIPAA compliant service
An entity that is HIPAA compliant service is one that adheres to the guidelines set forth in HIPAA regulations regarding the availability of private healthcare information. A HIPAA compliant entity accomplishes this by providing physical, technical and administrative security for documents until they are made available by a patient.
For a business or a person to be HIPAA compliant, access to private health information must be limited directly to an individual’s care or billing for that care. This information can be released once a HIPAA compliant body provides the proper authorization forms to patients.
Access to private health information is limited in a HIPAA compliant environment through the use of physical, technical and administrative securities. A HIPAA compliant organization goes to great lengths to ensure that patient data is protected through strict adherence to HIPAA regulations.
