HIPAA Compliance Resources

Smith Business Interiors prides itself on helping clients better understand the issues associated with each HIPAA compliance regulation as well as the appropriate HIPAA compliance solution. Below you will find a list of associations, agencies and websites that offer specific information for every HIPAA compliance checklist.

The Security standard mandates safeguards for physical storage and maintenance, transmission, and access to individual health information. It applies not only to the transactions adopted under HIPAA compliance, but to all individual health information that is maintained or transmitted. However, the Electronic Signature standard applies only to the transactions adopted under HIPAA. The final rule was published on February 20, 2003 with a compliance date of April 21, 2005 (or April 21, 2006 for smaller health plans).
