The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Act sets the standards for protecting patients’ information. Companies that deal with protected health information (PHI) are required to put safeguards in place to ensure data is sufficiently protected.
We’ve put together a HIPAA starter pack to help make compliance easier.
The Privitar HIPAA Starter Pack installs an initial set of Privitar Rules to address twenty-nine sensitive data elements as defined in the HIPAA "Safe Harbor" de-identification standards.
The HIPAA sensitive data elements and corresponding Privitar rules can be imported into standard Privitar Publisher Policies that can be consistently applied at the team, division or corporate level. Rules may be customized to meet an organizations specific requirements.
The HIPAA Starter Pack is deployed as a Privitar Publisher Policy Export (JSON) and can be quickly imported into an existing Privitar Publisher instance.
