Clarity on Security and Privacy, HIPAA & HITECH for Medical Providers

July 13th, 2010 · No Comments

HITECH and HIPAA Security and Privacy safeguards have been evolving over the past 14 years.  Today a large amount of information has been provided outlining guidance for Medical providers.  Specifically 2 rules outling how to qualify for the federal incentive program for electronic health records was released today (July 13, 2010) (though not in effect until 60 days after publication date 7/28/2010).  They equally touch upon security and privacy concerns.  In total the two documents roll up to 1,092 pages.  After I finish going through these I will post applicable details here and of course here.

Download each from the Federal Register public inspection desk

Alternatively, download the documents (PDF) directly:

  1. Medicare and Medicaid Programs: Electronic Health Record Incentive Program
  2. Health Information Technology: Initial Set of Standards, Implementation Specifications, and Certification Criteria for Electronic Health Record Technology

Comments and insights welcomed,
