HIPAA and HL7
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a U.S. regulation protecting the privacy and security of certain health information. the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule. The Privacy Rule, or Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information, establishes national standards for the protection of certain health information. The Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information (the Security Rule) establish a national set of security standards for protecting certain health information that is held or transferred in electronic form.
The Privacy Rule
A major goal of the Privacy Rule is to assure that individuals’ health information is properly protected while allowing the flow of health information needed to provide and promote high quality health care and to protect the public's health and well being. The Rule strikes a balance that permits important uses of information, while protecting the privacy of people who seek care and healing.
1.Ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all e-PHI they create, receive, maintain or transmit;
2.Identifies and protects against reasonably anticipated threats to the security or integrity of the information;
3.Protects against reasonably anticipated, impermissible uses or disclosures; and
Ensure compliance by our workforce.
The Security Rule
The Security Rule of HIPAA Compliance means that AI Forte maintains reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards for protecting e-PHI.
1.Administrative safeguards: HIPAA defines administrative safeguards as, “Administrative actions, and policies and procedures, to manage the selection, development, implementation, and maintenance of security measures to protect electronic protected health information and to manage the conduct of the covered entity’s workforce in relation to the protection of that information
2. Physical safeguards: Physical safeguards involve access both to the physical structures of a covered entity and its electronic equipment. ePHI and the computer systems in which it resides must be protected from unauthorized access, in accordance with defined policies and procedures. Some of these requirements can be accomplished by using electronic security systems, but physicians should not rely on use of certified electronic health records technology to satisfy their Security Rule compliance obligations.
3. Technical safeguards: Technical safeguards encompass the technology, as well and the policies and procedures for its use, that protect ePHI and control access to it. They are often the most difficult regulations to comprehend and implement – luckily, AI Forte’s technology team includes some of the worlds leading HIPAA Implementation experts (Including our CTO who was a leader on the Obamacare platform in the United States).
Health Level Seven International (HL7) is a not-for-profit, ANSI-accredited standards developing organization dedicated to providing a comprehensive framework and related standards for the exchange, integration, sharing, and retrieval of electronic health information that supports clinical practice and the management, delivery and evaluation of health services.
HL7 is comprised of 7 Primary Standards
One: Defines the standard system integrations and compliance methods. These are the primary standards and possibly the most popular among the categories. Contains a library of CDA templates, incorporating and harmonizing previous efforts from Health Level Seven (HL7)
Two: States the foundational standards that users can build and helps define the standards and technology infrastructure they plan to use. CDA is a document markup standard that specifies the structure and semantics of "clinical documents" for the purpose of exchange.
Three: Helps link messaging and document standards for providers. An interoperability standard intended to facilitate the exchange of healthcare information between healthcare providers, patients, caregivers, payers, researchers, and any one else involved in the healthcare ecosystem.
Four: Details how electronic health records (EHR) are constructed and managed using profiles and models. Synchronizing and coordinating applications to automatically follow the patient, user (and other) contexts, CCOW serves as the basis for ensuring secure and consistent access to patient information from heterogeneous sources.
Five: Outlines the methods used for implementation and includes support documents for other categories. This section may also serve as the supplemental section for other standards categories. The workhorse of electronic data exchange in the clinical domain and arguably the most widely implemented standard for healthcare in the world.
Six: Explores the rules and references used to develop programming structures for software and aids in standards development as well. Provides a single source that allows implementers of V3 specifications to work with the full set of messages, data types, and terminologies needed to build a complete implementation.
Seven: Educates users and provides the tools to help aid in the development and adoption of HL7 standards.
