When endpoint security is simple, so is compliance.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) lays out the standards for protecting sensitive patient data. Together with the supplemental Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, these sets of regulations cover everything you need to do to ensure the privacy of your EMRs.
Many of these regulations have to do with endpoint security. With thousands of workstations, tablets and mobile devices being used throughout the average hospital, HIPAA compliant software is required to make sure patient data is secure from an internal breach.
Specifically, the HIPAA security rule provides standards and certain implementation specifications for the following endpoint security safeguards:
- Facility Access Controls
- Workstation Use
- Workstation Security
- Device and Media Controls
- Access Controls
- Audit Controls
- Person or Entity Authentication
- Transmission Security
