Healthcare Network Data Rules for HIPAA Security & Electronic Protected Health Information

“Electronic Protected Health Information,” referred to as e-PHI, encompasses all patient-related data that is generated, stored, exchanged, or received through electronic means. Due to its digital nature, this data is susceptible to potential loss or unauthorized access. The term “Covered Entities” encompasses businesses and organizations that handle this electronic protected health information, such as hospitals, physical therapists, dentists, health insurance providers, and various healthcare practitioners. These entities are obligated to adhere to the “Security Rule,” which mandates them to establish “reasonable and appropriate” administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to safeguard e-PHI.


Expanded Requirements for Reasonable and Appropriate Safeguards:

  1. Assure the confidentiality, security, and availability of all e-PHI created, received, or transmitted.
  2. Mitigate potential threats to the integrity and security of the information, actively identifying potential risks.
  3. Guard against any anticipated unauthorized uses or disclosures of the e-PHI.
  4. Ensure that the workforce members who access this information remain compliant with the established safeguards.


Security Rule Definitions

Confidentiality: Ensuring that e-PHI remains inaccessible and undisclosed to unauthorized individuals. The confidentiality stipulations serve as a safeguard against improper revelations and misuse of protected health information.

Integrity: Guaranteeing that e-PHI remains unaltered and unharmed by unauthorized means.

Availability: Ensuring that e-PHI remains accessible and can be readily utilized upon demand by authorized personnel.


Determining Appropriate Security Rule Elements for Your Business

Recognizing that covered entities span a spectrum ranging from expansive multi-state health plans to compact local physical therapy practices, the HHS acknowledges the adaptable and scalable nature of the Security Rule. This adaptability empowers covered entities to evaluate their unique circumstances and requirements, enabling them to implement solutions that align optimally with their needs. When a covered entity deliberates on the security measures to adopt, the Security Rule mandates the entity to take into account:

  1. Its physical dimensions, organizational intricacies, and capabilities.
  2. Its technological infrastructure, encompassing both hardware and software components.
  3. The financial considerations involved in implementing security measures.
  4. The probability of potential e-PHI data loss and the potential ramifications of risks to e-PHI.

A.N.S. Networking, Inc., has been the IT service provider to the last two work places I have been in over a span of 20 years. Our experience has been outstanding with service and support when it is needed. We have found they are usually ahead of the curve in terms of current issues and trends. They have always delivered as promised, and are always available when needed. And perhaps most importantly, they will talk to you in common language so you can understand a technical issue and what options there may be for addressing them. As a municipal government, we have also found they are sensitive to our annual budgeting requirements and restrictions. We would highly recommend them for your consideration.

ANS has been wonderful to work with. Brian and Evan have always responded to our calls in a timely manner. They are very knowledgeable and are always very professional. In the last couple of years we have opened two new locations and they did a walk through, ordered what we needed, set up everything and then tested the computers, scanners, server and printers. Brian goes above and beyond. Even on the weekends, when the doctors needed some assistance, we called and in a matter of minutes we were set. I would highly recommend their services. ANS is the best!

A.N.S Networking has been providing our IT services for roughly 15 years. Their expert guidance has helped us to implement new point of sale software, two accounting systems and networks at new locations. They have learned our corporate culture and are sensitive to whether a project is cost or time sensitive. They are always available via phone, email or text message - which is critical for an IT provider. Often they make me aware of potential issues so that we can fix them before they become a large problem. It is so nice to have a company I trust to handle not only the big projects but also small day to day tasks. I would recommend them to anyone. You will not be disappointed.
