HIPAA is a federal law that requires national standards created to protect individuals’ medical records from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The Privacy Rule for the first time creates national standards to protect individuals’ medical records and other personal health information. It gives patients more control over their health information, and it sets boundaries on the use and release of health records. (CDC, 2018).The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) is an organization created to maintain the Common Security Framework (CSF); it is a certified framework that enables healthcare organizations to assess whether they are compliant with both the NIST Cybersecurity framework and HIPPA Security Rule. At the same time, HIPPA and the HITECH Act create requirements for safeguarding and disclosing patient health information and ensuring that healthcare organizations comply. HITRUST CSF framework enables organizations to address security risk and compliance. The framework provides security measures based on organizational assessment. And the creation of Meaningful Use by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services promoted the widespread adoption of electronic health records systems, ultimately creating an infrastructure for quality, safety, and efficiency in patient care (MeHI, 2018).READ THE ABOVE.
