With advances in information technology and its adoption in the healthcare field, there have been significant ripple effects with respect to legislation for protection of privacy of patient information.
The establishment of rules and regulations in the healthcare sector has caused Healthcare providers and services to review their current documentation management practices and IT environments to ensure compliance with the HIPAA regulations.
HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. It is designed to standardize the industry on specific code sets and formats. In addition to standardizing the code sets and electronic frameworks, the law also established a minimum requirement for the protection and privacy of Personal Health Information (PHI).
Since every medical practice that files electronically must comply with these regulations or pay huge amounts of money in fines, the need for FileControl’s Knowledge and Litigation Management System can be seen. Large hospitals, clinics and even single clinician offices will all be required to provide safeguards and security to the PHI in their care.
