HIPAA compliance logging requirements

Anyone not living under a rock in the last 25 years knows that the US healthcare and health insurance industries are required to safeguard patient data under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This includes anyone who deals with protected health information (PHI), such as healthcare providers, health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and business associates like vendors, contractors, and subcontractors. It’s crucial to remain compliant, or else you could face some hefty fines and penalties allowable by the law.
