Health Insurance Portability Act of 1996
HIPAA is the national standard for electronic health care transactions and security of patient data. Organizations that store or transmit Patient Health Information (PHI) or National Provider Identifier (NPI) data are required to manage security and privacy of that data.
HIPAA requirements fall into 3 main categories, Administrative Safeguards, Physical Safeguards, and Technical Safeguards. ReadyCert is configured to display each requirement within the appropriate category. Narrative responses are linked to artifacts and documentation and can also be linked to NIST and CMS MECT RTM requirements.
