The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act regulations have changed healthcare documentation and storage requirements, and more importantly, requirements for data security.
Healthcare organizations face a tough challenge under HIPAA: they must secure data, regulate its access, and retain it for periods sometimes measured in decades.
The Security Rule is what most affects IT, because it mandates protection and control of electronic records.
Healthcare enterprises have three data management/storage needs: backup and restore, disaster recovery and patient image archiving. HIPAA has added the significant additional burden of privacy and security of protected health information.
The first step in gaining a handle on your records data is simply to move to online data storage to establish a foundation on which to consolidate and secure all of your company's information.
There are three areas that must be examined in order to secure records data storage:
• Access to local data;
• Access to backup data, and
• Ensuring that backups of critical data are maintained and archived.
