Track HIPAA Compliance with Onspring

The privacy regulations in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) require health care providers and organizations, as well as their business associates, to develop and follow procedures that ensure the confidentiality and security of protected health information (PHI) when it is transferred, received, handled, or shared. This applies to all forms of PHI, including printed, verbal and electronic data. HIPAA does the following:

  • Mandates industry-wide standards for health care information on electronic billing and other processes
  • Requires the protection and confidential handling of protected health information
  • Reduces health care fraud and abuse
  • Provides the ability to transfer and continue health insurance coverage for American workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs
