As the need to ensure the security of sensitive health information grows, security and compliance teams must look to more integrated approaches to reduce risk and increase efficiency.

This white paper looks at the most important elements of securing sensitive health information and meeting HIPAA compliance requirements in a scalable and cost-effective way.

The paper also provides an overview of the HITECH Act, which addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information, in part, through several provisions that strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules.
