New Lumension Webcast Highlights Key Steps to Prepare Healthcare Firms and Business Associates to Comply with New HITECH Act
Date:2/18/2010

Expert Outlines how Healthcare Entities Secure Electronic Protected Health Information and Ensure Data Privacy and Security Regulations under HITECH Compliance

Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) February 18, 2010 -- According to Computer Sciences’ (CSC) Healthcare Group, 98 percent of survey respondents have a policy in place to limit disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI), yet only 52 percent employ encryption technologies to render data unreadable or unusable in the case of unauthorized access¹.

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) of 2009, part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), advances the electronic exchange of large amounts of health information and expands on the reach of the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) data privacy and security requirements to ensure the security of electronic protected health information (ePHI). The HIPAA Security Rule covers health plans, healthcare clearinghouses and healthcare providers; however, starting on February 17, 2010, business associates under the HITECH Act will now be required to comply with the security rule requirements. Organizations associated with HITECH must ensure data remains private and secure or face multiple criminal and civil penalties for non-compliance.

In this Lumension webcast, Chris Merritt, director of solution marketing for Lumension, uncovers the changes required by the HITECH Act and the necessary actions healthcare organizations need to take to ensure full compliance against stricter requirements.

The webcast also outlines:

 
  • The new HITECH Act requirements and policies;
  • Who is impacted by this regulation;
  • The penalties and costs associated for non-compliance; and,
  • Recommendations to secure ePHI and ensure continuous HITECH compliance
