HIPAA compliance is likely a familiar topic to you if you work in a healthcare organization that is located in or operated in the U.S. To avoid hefty fines related to handling and processing protected health information, it’s vital that you follow the requirements of HIPAA, or, the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
Whether you work at a hospital, family practice, or some other organization in the healthcare space, it’s likely you don’t work in a vacuum. You may work with a variety of tools and platforms on a daily basis, and some of these may need to process Protected Health Information (PHI) at some point. In this case, it’s important that your vendors are HIPAA compliant as well, otherwise you could face repercussions based on their neglect.
