Cloud security and privacy in context of HIPAA
The HIPAA Privacy Rule regulates the use and disclosure and requires appropriate safeguards of an individual’s PHI by covered entities and BAs. The Privacy Rule also grants patients rights over their health information, including the right to request corrections and examine and obtain a copy of their health records.
The HIPAA Security Rule primarily regulates electronic PHI (ePHI) by establishing standards to protect this electronic information that is created, received, used, or maintained by a covered entity. The Security Rule identifies three particular safeguards – administrative, physical, and technical – to ensure security of the data and compliance with the regulation.
