Organizations bound by HIPAA are required to have adequate security measures in place to ensure the confidentiality of protected health information. This involves the creation and documentation of detailed privacy and security policies & procedures, which will serve as a guideline for all other administrative processes. This is a difficult, time-consuming task, best accomplished by taking an organized approach and using recognized standards wherever possible.
Those policies and procedures are useless unless they are effectively communicated to all employees (and contractors who might have network access). For this reason, the HIPAA regulation requires ongoing awareness training so that privacy and security become second nature. People need constant reminding of the myriad of new rules and potential threats, and this is most efficiently done through automated means.
HIPAA is not a one-time event, it's the law. The most efficient way to maintain compliance with the law is by incorporating it into the everyday business process and automating any specific actions required for compliance. Security and policy awareness must be a continual process in order to maximize the effectiveness of the security infrastructure and protected patient privacy.
