  • The HIPAA Privacy Rule protects the privacy of individually identifiable health information.
  • The HIPAA Security Rule sets national standards for the security of electronic protected health information (EPHI).
TechFusion understands the need to be compliant with HIPAA regulations. Our business has always been very secure against outside entities hacking into our databases and we have implemented internal security measures to keep your data secure. Privacy is what we pride ourselves upon and why many of our clients coming back to us over the years. We respect the privacy of you and your patients. In most cases medical facilities, medical billing companies, office and clinics have their own non-disclosure form that they need signed. This not a problem, we take all required steps and necessary precautions to stay within the HIPAA regulations. We offer fully documented recoveries in HIPAA compliancy for an additional charge, added to the cost of the recovery.

Effective April 14, 2004, all covered entities must have Business Associate Contracts with their business associates that contain the mandatory provisions required by the Privacy Rule.

The Privacy Rule requires covered entities to guard against misuse of personally identifiable health information and limit the sharing of such information. The Privacy Rule also grants consumers significant rights regarding the use and disclosure of their health information.

The Security Rule requires covered entities to implement basic safeguards to protect Electronic protected health information (“PHI”) from unauthorized access, alteration, deletion, and transmission. The security standards define the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic PHI.

All health care providers, health plans, health care clearinghouses, Medicare prescription drug card sponsors and other healthcare service providers who generate, use, transmit and store electronic patient records must comply with HIPAA standards.
