Health Data Protection
The HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules apply to all healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and to any service provider that manages electronic protected health information (ePHI). This applies to organizations in the life sciences field such as medical devices, biotechnology, and pharmaceuticals.
Service providers (business associates) know that a third-party validation of their HIPAA compliance is a competitive differentiator that demonstrates they’re securing ePHI and providing peace of mind to their customers. Software companies, mobile application developers, hosting organizations and the like should all consider HIPAA compliance and application security if they’re managing ePHI. Because it’s not if a data breach will occur, but when.
