HIPAA / EMR

The Critical Need to Comply with HIPAA

If you reduce patient information to an electronic format you are required to comply with the 1996 Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) privacy and security standards.  In many cases, paper records are covered by HIPAA also.  Compliance is essential:

  • Compliance enables healthcare organizations and providers to realize operational savings that will offset initial expenditures
  • Increased use of electronic data interchange will decrease operational costs through savings in labor, postage, and increased reimbursement speed and accuracy
  • A secure environment for personnel, property, and sensitive medical records helps to foster employee and patient confidence
