At the federal level in the United States, organizations like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Office of the Inspector General (OIG) oversee healthcare providers’ compliance with relevant standards and regulations. The HHS Office for Civil Rights imposes the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
Title II of HIPAA act defines policies and procedures for maintaining the privacy and security of patients’ and medical staff’s personal information by the healthcare provider and affiliated business entities. Penalties for the information security violation for organizations operating in the medical industry range from $100 for "unknowing violation" up to $1.5 million for "willful neglect".
Healthcare organizations’ compliance extends to all their activities related to patient care, e.g. medical billing, reimbursement etc.
Each and every software used by healthcare organizations should provide data encryption capabilities to prevent unauthorized personal from accessing from sensitive information. Encryption of data may reduce the performance of a healthcare application. We can resolve this issue at file-level and block-level encryption. This encryption will not impact application performance in a way for user to notice.
