It can also analyze individual computers for HIPAA computer security.
HIPAA Security Defined
HIPAA security compliance deals with the maintenance and management of information in such a way that it is protected sufficiently to meet the HIPAA requirements enacted by the United States Congress in 1996. Typically, a HIPAA security audit is run to measure the current level of compliance, followed by defining an organization’s HIPAA security policies and then deploying those policies to individual machines throughout the network to implement a measure of HIPAA computer security.
HIPAA Security Prevalence
HIPAA security compliance is mandatory for any enterprise that handles healthcare information. Every company involved in the health insurance industry should routinely conduct a HIPAA security audit and establish HIPAA security policies and HIPAA computer security.
