HIPAA Security Compliance
The HIPAA Security Rule, effective April 20, 2005, requires that workforce members adhere to controls and safeguards to: (1) ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of confidential information; and (2) detect and prevent reasonably anticipated errors and threats due to malicious or criminal actions, system failure, natural disasters and employee or user error.
Such events could result in damage to or loss of personal information, corruption or loss of data integrity, interruption of University activities, or compromise to the privacy of the University patients or employees and its records.
