HIPAA Compliance

Providing Safe and Secure Drug Testing

What is the HIPAA Privacy Rule?

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the HIPAA Privacy Rule to enforce HIPAA requirements. The Privacy Rule Addresses the use and disclosure of the health information for individuals by covered entities subject to the Rule. It also creates a standard for individual privacy rights to control and understand how their health information is used.

Within HHS, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has a responsibility to implement and impose the HIPAA Privacy Rule with respect to voluntary compliance activities and civil money penalties. Anyone can file a complaint to the OCR if they believe a HIPAA violation has occurred.

What are the HIPAA Compliance Requirements?

Administrative Safeguards: These safeguards have to do with the policies and procedures you have in place to ensure the proper employee management, training, and oversight for staff that come into contact or manage protected health information.

Technical Safeguards: These are usually safeguards that website hosts don’t touch. They include things like encryption and decryption, audit controls, emergency access procedures, HIPAA file storage and more.

Physical Safeguards: These are the safeguards around the security of the data and includes data redundancy and failure requirements, access to servers, and more.
