42 HIPAA Audit Points

This is a nice checklist from Computer World of 42 points a HIPAA auditor might look for.

Even though HIPAA -- the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act -- applies to health care institutions and companies, the confidential customer data they're supposed to protect is all the same.

Finance or health, they all have our data, and they all need to protect it.

It is having said that until today 2007 many of healthcare organizations are unaware of what exactly the HIPAA rules and regulations are and/or they don’t want to invest their money to get HIPAA compliant. With the growing incidence of privacy breaches the compliance authorities should need to put more efforts bringing awareness about the HIPAA compliance and should try to make it easy and cost effective for organization to get HIPAA compliant. Very recently I came across one tool which I really find more helpful. This tool will help many organizations for multitask compliance achievement. A crosswalk between different regulations poster from Symantec is a very useful tool. This poster is crosswalk between: Sarbanes Oxley, HIPAA, Payment Card Industry (PCI), GLBA, NERC standards CIP and PIPEDA (Canada)
