2 Introduction This white paper examines the data security and privacy compliance requirements of the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). It examines the purpose and objectives of specific portions of the Act related to information security and the privacy of data transfers and communications. Finally, this paper explores how isheriff Cloud Security enables organizations to meet HIPAA compliance requirements with technology and real-time data identification. The Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is US federal law, enacted in IT ADDRESSES: a) Healthcare insurance access, portability of healthcare insurance from one employer to another and affects the exclusion period for certain pre-existing health conditions when enrolled in a group health plan. b) Civil and criminal penalties for healthcare related offences such as fraud. c) Standards for improving the efficiency of healthcare administration and how health information is disseminated. d) Data security and privacy standards for Protected Health Information (PHI) and Electronic Protected Health Information ORGANIZATIONS AFFECTED BY HIPAA HIPAA affects any organization in the US handling Protected Health Information. Typically, organizations that handle PHI are issued with a National Provider Identifier (NPI) number by the Centers for Medicare and Medicade Services (CMS). Organizations required to comply with HIPAA regulations are termed covered entities. COMMON EXAMPLES OF COVERED ENTITIES INCLUDE: Health insurers Healthcare clearing houses» Hospitals Nursing homes Pharmacies Laboratories Physicians, physiotherapists and general practitioner s offices HIPAA REQUIREMENTS HIPAA stipulates a range of requirements for organizations handing healthcare insurance and PHI. This white paper is primarily concerned with HIPAA requirements governing data security and privacy. HIPAA IS STRUCTURED IN THREE MAIN AREAS: 1: TITLE I - HEALTHCARE ACCESS Title I regulates the availability of healthcare insurance and the portability of insurance across employers and group healthcare plans. note: this white paper does not address this area of the Act in detail. 2: TITLE II - FRAUD, PRIVACY, SECURITY AND ADMINISTRATION Title II defines various offences relating to healthcare such as fraud and sets criminal and civil penalties for these crimes. It also stipulates a series of standards and controls regarding the handling of PHI, termed Administrative Simplification. Title II sets out five rules regarding Administrative Simplification: 1) PRIVACY RULE - regulates the use and disclosure of PHI by covered entities, e.g.:

3 a) Covered entities must ensure the confidentiality of communications with individuals. b) Covered entities must disclose PHI to the individual concerned within 30 days upon request. c) Covered entities must make reasonable efforts to disclose only the minimum necessary information required to achieve its purpose, after authorization is obtained from the individual. d) Covered entities are required to notify an Individual of users of their PHI. They must also keep a record of who PHI has been disclosed to, what was disclosed and when. e) Covered entities must appoint a Privacy Official responsible for establishing PHI security policies and procedures internally, be the contact point for PHI-related complaints and be responsible for internal workforce training for procedures relating to PHI. 2) Transactions and Code Sets Rule - stipulates standards for electronic healthcare claims, billing and transactions required by HIPPA compliance. 3) SecurIty Rule - similar and complementary to the Privacy Rule, but solely concerned with Electronic Protected Healthcare Information (EPHI). The Security Rule specifies three types of security safeguards for EPHI: a) ADMINISTRATIVE SAFEGUARDS i) Covered entities must adopt a written set of privacy procedures and appoint a Privacy Officer. ii) Clearly identify employees or roles authorized to access EPHI and restrict access to only those employees who require it to perform their job function. iii) Covered entities must adopt a written set of privacy procedures and appoint a Privacy Officer. iv) Outsourced third-parties who require access to EPHI in their business process must comply with HIPAA requirements and the covered entity is responsible for ensuring this. v) Establish data disaster recovery and backup procedures for EPHI. vi) Document the scope, frequency and procedures for internal EPHI and administrative audits. vii) Document procedures for EPHI security breaches. b) PHYSICAL SAFEGUARDS i) Controls must be implemented to ensure the physical security of EPHI and protect against unauthorized access ii) Controls must govern the introduction or removal of hardware and software on the network. iii) Access to equipment storing EPHI must be restricted to authorized personnel. iv) Workstations capable of accessing EPHI should be located in private areas and out of direct view of the public or unauthorized people. v) If a covered entity uses an external contractor, they must be given training and made aware of HIPAA responsibilities. c) TECHNICAL SAFEGUARDS i) Controls must be implemented to control access to computer system and ensure that covered entities protect communications containing PHI and prevent anyone other than the intended recipient from intercepting them. ii) EPHI information systems must be protected against intrusion or hacking. iii) When EPHI is transmitted over an open network, some form of data encryption must be applied. If the network is closed, data encryption is considered to be optional.

4 iv) Covered entities are responsible for ensuring that EPHI is not changed or erased without appropriate authoriza- tion. v) Data corroboration such as the use of digital signatures, check sums, and message authentication should be used to ensure data integrity and anti-tampering. vi) Covered entities must authenticate with other entities which they communicate EPHI with. Covered entities must ensure that entities are indeed who they claim to be. vii) Covered entities must document their HIPAA compliance practices around the Security Rule and provide these to appropriate government regulators upon request to help determine HIPAA compliance. viii) Covered entities must also carry out and document EPHI security risk assessments and risk management programs. The Security Rule is considered to be a mandatory, minimum standard for EPHI security and covered entities are obligated to make specific assessments of their own security risks and take reasonable additional precautions necessary to protect EPHI within the covered entity s specific environment. 3: HITECH ACT The HITECH Act (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of It addresses additional privacy and security issues relating to the electronic transmission of PHI. It extends the data privacy and security requirements of HIPAA to business associates of covered entities and stipulates that these requirements be included in agreements and contracts between covered entities and business associates. The Act also imposes additional notification requirements relating to PHI security breaches and extends these to not only covered entities, but business associates and vendors of personal health records. Lastly, the Act also implements changes in the rules governing disclosures of PHI when an organization uses an electronic health record (EHR). 4) UNIQUE IDENTIFIERS RULE - Covered entities governed by HIPAA must use only the National Provider Identifier (NPI) number to identify covered healthcare providers. Covered entities must not share PHI with entities that do not use an NPI - a 10 digit alphanumeric identification number. 5) ENFORCEMENT RULE - sets civil monetary penalties for covered entities that violate or fail to comply with HIPAA requirements. It also establishes how violations are investigated and prosecuted.

7 ACHIEVING HIPAA COMPLIANCE HIPAA Requirement PHI must be encrypted when transmitted over an open network Data corroboration such as digital signatures,check sums, and message authentication should be used to ensure data integrity and anti-tampering Covered entities must authenticate with other entities which they communicate EPHI with Covered entities must keep a record of who PHI has been disclosed to, what was disclosed and when isheriff Cloud Security communications are protected by 128-bit SSL connections and/or S/ MIME PKI encryption over open networks.
