HIPAA compliant

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.

  • In order to be HIPAA compliant, one must adhere to the guidelines set forth in HIPAA regulations regarding availability and security of PHIs.
  • PHIs are only available for use by those directly involved in healthcare or for the billing of that healthcare.
  • Guidelines must be in place to provide physical, technical, and administrative security for PHIs.
  • Telegenisys is an externally audited HIPAA compliant service provider that can offer assistance with case handling and records management functions.
