What is HIPAA Compliance? DHHS or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services takes upon the responsibility of updating covered entities and issuing new standards regarding the use or exchange of PHI. From a conventional perspective, any healthcare provider referring to his practice being HIPAA-compliant meant that he was attempting to comply with the Privacy Rule. However, in due course of time, it has become much simpler to become HIPAA-compliant. A recent development that has aided this transformation is the enactment of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act 2009 — ARRA. The ARRA has gained prominence owing the to the presence of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health or the HITECH Act within it. The HIPAA Act of 1996 has set strict standards regarding a patient’s Protected Health Information (PHI) as a part of its Privacy Rule regulations.
The Business Records Center takes HIPPA Compliance very seriously. All staff members are screened with a background check and drug analysis. All client documents are held in a secured, fire proof storage area for maximum security.
