HIPAA News and Updates

  • OCR Issues Guidance on HIPAA, COVID-19 Vaccinations, and the Workplace

    Today, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Office for Civil Rights (OCR) issued guidance to help the public understand when the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule applies to disclosures and requests for information about whether a person has received a COVID-19 vaccine.

    The guidance reminds the public that the HIPAA Privacy Rule does not apply to employers or employment records. This is because the HIPAA Privacy Rule only applies to HIPAA covered entities (health plans, health care clearinghouses, and health care providers that conduct standard electronic transactions), and, in some cases, to their business associates.

  • Clinical Laboratory Pays $25,000 to Settle Potential HIPAA Security Rule Violations

    Peachstate Health Management, LLC, doing business as AEON Clinical Laboratories (Peachstate), has agreed to pay $25,000 to the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and to implement a corrective action plan to settle potential violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Security Rule. Peachstate is based in Georgia and is certified under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA). Peachstate provides diagnostic and laboratory-developed tests, including clinical and genetic testing services.

  • The Future of HIPAA: Reflections at the 25th Anniversary of HIPAA

    August 31, 2021

    It is now exactly 25 years to the day since the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law by President Clinton. On August 21, 1996, when President Clinton added his signature to the legislation, few people would have realized how HIPAA would evolve and grow into the comprehensive national health privacy law that it is today.

  • Unintended Consequences Seen in Proposed HIPAA Privacy Rule Revision

    July 20, 2021

    The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has proposed modifying patient privacy rules to remove barriers to coordinated care. The AMA says the proposal is “well-intentioned” but ill-timed and incomplete, having the potential to whittle away protections designed to secure private health information.

Frequently Asked Questions

A HIPAA compliance certificate shows that you have completed all the necessary requirements your individual HIPAA consultant requires. Although this document doesn’t disqualify you for random HHS audits, it does show your willingness to make demonstrable progress towards HIPAA compliance.

The Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information, commonly known as the HIPAA Security Rule, establishes national standards for securing patient data that is stored or transferred electronically. It draws from the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework.

The Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information, commonly known as the HIPAA Security Rule, establishes national standards for securing patient data that is stored or transferred electronically. It draws from the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework:

  1. 1. Can the sources of ePHI and PHI within the organization -- including all PHI created, received, maintained or transmitted -- be identified?
  2. What are the external sources of PHI?
  3. What are the human, natural and environmental threats to information systems that contain ePHI and PHI?

Using the answers to these questions, organizations can decide what measures they need to take to maintain or develop a HIPAA-compliant security management process, for example:

  1. design a personnel screening process
  2. identify which data to back up;
  3. determine how and where to back up data;
  4. determine how and where encryption should be used;
  5. determine what data should be authenticated for data integrity; and
  6. Implement access control for physical workstations and electronic media, as well as data.

In terms of HIPAA compliance, the HITECH Act is important because it addresses loopholes in the original legislation and gives the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) more powers to enforce HIPAA. It also introduces accountability for Business Associates and vendors of personal health devices, who – in addition to HHS sanctions – can now be subject to civil and criminal penalties for data breaches.

The three most significant ways in which the HITECH Act affects HIPAA are the introduction of the Breach Notification Rule, the inclusion of Business Associates among who can be held accountable for data breaches, and the powers given to HHS to facilitate enforcement action. It is important to note that, although HITECH mostly focuses on information technology, HHS can still take enforcement action against a Covered Entity or Business Associate when a breach unrelated to technology occurs.

HIPAA E-book

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted by the United States Congress in 1996 and signed into law by then President Bill Clinton. The act establishes national standards for the protection of certain health information. HIPAA requires the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to set national standards for electronic health care transactions, as well as privacy and security protections for individuals’ healthcare information.
