Compliance requirements are always changing. Does your practice have an easy way to keep up?

Let's Talk

HIPAA compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the standards for protecting sensitive patient health information. Every medical institution must abide by these guidelines to protect against fraud, theft, or other situations that could compromise patient data. While HIPAA compliance is essential, it has created many rules, and having a professional team and platform can aid the compliance process.

As part of our Practice Management Bridge® platform, Rectangle Health offers solutions to simplify HIPAA compliance for medical offices. You can operate with confidence while knowing you have an easy way to stay updated on all requirements. Our solution also reduces the time it takes to meet compliance standards, like HIPAA-compliant processing and mailing, freeing you to provide excellent patient care.

FREE HIPAA Risk Assessment

HIPAA Risk Assessments are an annual requirement under the HIPAA Security rule (Section 164 308(A)(1)(II)(A)). This risk assessment identifies potential vulnerabilities in managing electronic protected health information.

In the event of an audit from the Office for Civil Rights, you’ll need to document you have one on file to show your compliance with HIPAA regulations. Every entity covered by HIPAA is eligible for an audit.

Take your FREE HIPAA Risk Assessment!

Find gaps in compliance to get them fixed as soon as possible and safeguard your patients' Protected Health Information (PHI). While risk assessments are legally required, they also provide valuable information for improving patient care.

Who does HIPAA affect?

HIPAA covered entities

HIPAA requirements apply to particular individuals and organizations. Here are the general categories these laws apply to:

  • Covered entities: Healthcare providers, health plans, or healthcare clearinghouses.
  • Business associates: A person or entity that performs certain functions or activities involving the use or disclosure of protected health information on behalf of, or provides services to, a covered entity.

Healthcare providers include practices of any size that transmit health information through transactions like claims or referral authorizations. Health plans include insurers, Medicare, and employer-sponsored group health plans. Entities processing identifiable patient information are known as healthcare clearinghouses. They typically process such information for health plans or healthcare providers. Business associates perform tasks like claims processing, payment processing, or data analyses.

What are the HIPAA training requirements?

Every new and existing member of the covered entity’s workforce must receive training. The team must also receive training as policies change and impact compliance. Training may vary depending on the covered entity because many deal with PHI differently. Here are a few things basic HIPAA training for employees might include:

  • An overview of HIPAA and what it applies to
  • Definitions of key terms used in HIPAA
  • Major HIPAA regulatory rules
  • HIPAA Privacy and Security Rule basics
  • Patient rights under HIPAA
  • Practices for preventing violations
  • Consequences of HIPAA breaches

Employees demonstrate their understanding of HIPAA requirements by signing acknowledgments showing they received training and resources.
