Problem: Manual HIPAA Auditing
The HIPAA Privacy Rule and Security rule both proclaim that organizations must put physical safeguards, such as a badging system and security cameras, in place to protect ePHI data.
These safeguards are meant to restrain physical access to sensitive information and create a documented trail of who accesses the data and when.
However, access control companies don’t currently design their security software to include HIPAA audits.
This leaves the organization having to custom configure their own security system to ensure they’re meeting HIPAA compliance.
It would be ideal if the security system was included into the organization’s compliance strategy.
