Protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of patient information is no longer just a best practice for healthcare organisations, it's a legal requirement.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) mandates that all healthcare organisations effectively meet Administrative, Technical and Physical safeguards to protect the privacy of patient information, and maintain data integrity for employees, customers and shareholders.
IBM Internet Security Systems, Inc. (ISS) has demonstrated proven success helping organisations achieve HIPAA compliance, with our consulting services, protection technology, comprehensive managed protection services and up-to-the-minute security intelligence on the latest threats.
Our approach to HIPAA compliance
To help your organisation achieve compliance, we employ a five-step process that covers the complete security management lifecycle, including phases for Assessment, Design, Deployment, Management and Education (ADDME). This ADDME process helps identify and analyse gaps between current state and HIPAA requirements, and then designs and helps implement solutions to close those gaps and ensure ongoing conformity.
