    Who needs HIPAA Compliance and under what scope?

    HHS HIPAA Rules are very clear about what businesses are considered as Covered Entities and their Business Associates subject to HIPAA regulations.

    Covered Entities

    • Healthcare Providers (Doctors, Clinics, Dentists, Pharmacies, Psychologists, Chiropractors, Nursing Homes)
    • Clearinghouses, health information interoperability Services
    • Health Plans, Medicare, Medicaid, Private Insurances
    • Health Maintenance Organizations
    • Government Health Programs

    Business Associates

    • EHR, Telehealth, Patient Apps, Medical Imaging or other software vendors or subcontractors with access to ePHI.
    • Computer consultants, medical equipment manufacturers
    • Medical Billing, Coding, Transcriptionist or Answering Services
    • Emergency medical dispatcher services
    • Healthcare data processing and transmission firms

    De-Risk your Business from HIPAA Violation Fines and Penalties

    Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) non-compliance has devastating consequences, severe reputation damage, crippling fines and bankruptcy risks, depending on the severity and level of breach. As a Healthcare Provider, Medical Billing Service, Health Plan, Clearinghouse, Health-IT / EMR/ EHR Application Vendor, or a Business Associate handling sensitive health information, you cannot afford to ignore HIPAA compliance, strict rules and regulations designed to protect patients’ privacy and the security.

    Did you know that a single HIPAA violation can cost your organization $1.5 million fine?
    The HHS OCR HIPAA breach reporting portal shows 595 HIPAA breaches reported in 2022 affecting more than 40 million patients. 2021 was worst year with 686 breaches, beating 2020 with 642 healthcare data breaches.

    The HIPAA fines are imposed by the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) under 4-tiers penalty structure for violations based on the level of negligence. Fine amount varies for each case, depending on the factors such as the severity of the violation, the number of individuals affected, and the organization’s compliance history. On HIPAA Compliance, there is a lot to learn from the HIPAA breaches cases, as Warren Buffet once said:

    It’s good to learn from your mistakes. It’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.

    eClinicalWorks fined $155 million
    In 2018, eClinicalWorks, one of the largest electronic health record (EHR) vendors in the United States, was fined $155 million for falsely claiming that its software complied with certain certification requirements. The vendor also allegedly failed to adequately protect patient data and engage in timely problem resolution.
    Anthem Inc. fined $16 million

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about HIPAA Compliance

    Here are some of the more commonly-asked HIPAA Compliance questions and with answers:

    Who Performs HIPAA Audits?
    The Department of Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has jurisdiction to conduct HIPAA audit, inspection or inquiry for any covered entities or business associate described here.
    How many years is HIPAA certification good for?
    HIPAA logs need to be retained for at least 6 years so it is usually said that the certification is good for a minimum of 6 years. But in reality there is no fixed term of HIPAA certification expiration. However, businesses need to train their employees annually for any modifications or new rules introduced.
    Can you get Free HIPAA Certification for your business?
    There are free HIPAA trainings, course and resources but they just offer knowledge. Business requires applied knowledge, documented policies, implemented procedure and monitoring for an effective HIPAA compliance.
    What is HIPAA and HITECH?
    HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, which was passed by Congress in 1996. The law, among other things, provides rules and guidelines for healthcare providers to protect and handle patients’ protected health information. HITECH stands for the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act, enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. HITECH updated HIPAA to include and promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. When we talk about HIPAA we also include HITECH as well.
    What is a Covered Entity?
    Covered Entities are institutions, organizations, or individuals who electronically transmit any health information in connection with transactions for which HIPAA has adopted standards. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Covered Entities fall into three categories: (1) health plans, (2) health care clearinghouses, and (3) health care providers.
    What is a Business Associate?
    A Business Associate is a person or entity that performs certain functions on behalf of a Covered Entity that involve the use or disclosure of protected health information. Technically, HIPAA only applies to Covered Entities; however, Covered Entities may not be fully capable of handling all of their business activities without some help from outside their business. Therefore, HIPAA allows Covered Entities to disclose protected health information to a Business Associate if the Covered Entity obtains assurances that the Business Associate will use the information only for the purposes for which it was engaged and how it will safeguard the information from misuse.
    What is Protected Health Information (PHI)?
    Protected health information, or PHI, is any information about health status, health care treatment, or health care payment that is created or collected by a Covered Entity or Business Associate and can be linked to a specific individual. There are 18 data points categorized by HIPAA that fall under PHI, ranging from names to IP address numbers and URLs to any other unique identifying number, characteristic, or code that can trace back to the individual patient.
    What is the HIPAA Privacy Rule?
    The HIPAA Privacy Rule permits the use and disclosure of PHI needed for patient care and other important purposes as long as the Covered Entity and Business Associate implement appropriate safeguards to protect the privacy of PHI, including imposing certain limits and conditions on the use and disclosure of PHI without patient authorization.
    What is the HIPAA Security Rule?
    The HIPAA Security Rule requires Covered Entities to maintain reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect PHI. The Security Rule allows Covered Entities to analyze their own needs and implement solutions appropriate for their business or practice. In other words, what works for a particular Covered Entity will depend on their respective business, size, and resources.
    What is the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule?
    The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule requires Covered Entities to notify affected patients, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and (in some cases) the media of a PHI breach. Most notifications must be made without unreasonable delay and no later than 60 days following the discovery of a breach. The Breach Notification Rule also requires Business Associates to notify the Covered Entity of a breach of PHI held by the Business Associate.
    What is a Business Associate Agreement?
    HIPAA requires Covered Entities to enter into contracts called Business Associate Agreements, or BAAs, with their Business Associates to ensure that the Business Associate will safeguard their PHI. The BAA spells out the permissible uses and disclosures of PHI based on the relationship between the parties and the services being performed by the Business Associates. The BAA includes many of the requirements under the Privacy Rule, the Security Rule, and the Breach Notification Rule. Progress provides you with a Business Associate Agreement to protect your data and help conform to your business’s HIPAA compliance program.
