HIPAA: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996
HIPAA requires that anyone with access to patient medical information handles that information in a manner that protects the privacy of the individual. The key for any Health Care organization to become “HIPAA Compliant” is to protect patient health information (PHI). Certainly an organization must comply with government regulations, but it must also ensure that the tools and processes to protect this information will actually work. Below are key members of the Parallels ISV ecosystem that provide encryption, archiving, and other security features and functions that work seamlessly with Parallels products to help an organization become and sustain HIPAA compliance.
