The purpose of this presentation is to help the health care organization structure its HIPAA compliance program in a way that allows the allows IT to be a constructive part of the HIPAA compliance effort. This includes understanding that implementing basic IT resources will NOT alone make the health care organization HIPAA compliant. The program stresses that the IT compliance resources only provide a basis for the organization to be compliant; the organization’s compliance is dependent on the organization’s ability to implement the IT and other resources available to it. The program describes IT security and privacy measures, the need for a business associate agreement with IT vendors, what security resources the IT vendors must provide for the organization to be HIPAA compliant and how to write IT HIPAA policies and procedures.
IT is a critical component in a health care organization’s HIPAA compliance efforts. But, it is just that – a component. IT needs to be considered in the health care organization’s HIPAA compliance from the perspective of the risks and vulnerabilities presented for HIPAA compliance and the resources it can bring to aiding the organization being HIPAA compliant. The health care organization needs to know the role that IT plays in the HIPAA compliance, how to work with software vendors, the responsibilities of software vendors, how to work with your IT department, how to develop IT security policies and procedures and the impact of cloud computing on HIPAA compliance.
