HIPAA Safeguards

Healthcare information is among the most private and sensitive information in regular use. As a result, since both electronic and physical records are common, HIPAA compliance has to follow both Physical Safeguards and Technical Safeguards.

Physical Safeguards

  • Facility Access Control

    Controlling who can access your physical facility is the first line of defense in terms of protecting your data. Therefore, limit physical access only to those authorized to work with sensitive data.

  • Workstation and Security Control

    Protect all your devices inside your office – desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, etc. Further, limit physical access to these devices to authorized personnel. In addition, use strong passwords. To clarify, two things make a strong password: (1) a large number of characters, and (2) mixing upper and lower case letters, numeric digits, and special characters ($, #, @, etc.).

  • Devices and Media Control

    Protect data on any devices or media, like internal hard drives, external hard drives, memory cards, or flash drives. For instance, whenever possible, encrypt your data to prevent unapproved access.

Technical Safeguards

  • Access Control

    Limit the ability to access files to approved parties. Consequently, no one should be able to read, write, modify, or transfer data without the proper authorization. Accordingly, grant authorizations only to the extent necessary.

  • Audit Control

    You must be capable of performing an audit on data activity. That is to say, you must be able to produce a detailed log of who accessed files, when they were accessed, and any activity regarding these files.

  • Integrity Control

    Establish policies and procedures to ensure that electronic protected health information (ePHI) is neither altered nor destroyed.

  • Person or Entity Authentication

    Ensure that the users attempting to access protected data actually are who they claim to be. For example, use a multi-step authentication method to accomplish that.

  • Transmission Security

    Protect all HIPAA-covered data when you transfer it to other parties.

HIPAA Compliant Document Sharing

An efficient way to align with HIPAA standards is to adopt a HIPAA compliant and highly secure document sharing solution. Such a solution can help you keep your data safe and share information in a very controlled manner.
