What is HIPAA Compliance Software?

HIPAA Compliance Software is used by healthcare providers and related healthcare entities to ensure compliance with the privacy and security provisions set forth by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

HIPAA compliance tools also help prepare for state- and federal-level audits and compliance procedures.

The HIPAA sets forth that healthcare providers must safeguard patients’ protected health information (PHI).

PHI includes:

  • Name
  • Date of birth (DOB)
  • Social security number
  • Phone number
  • Health records
  • Financial and insurance details
