Addressing HIPAA Compliance
HIPAA compliance encompasses limitations on uses and disclosures of such information, safeguards against inappropriate uses and disclosures, and individuals’ rights with respect to their health information. Failure to comply with HIPAA regulations can result in substantial fines, criminal charges and even civil action lawsuits.
Compliance with HIPAA regulations also requires that covered entities implement policies and procedures to ensure that ePHI is not improperly altered or destroyed. VPNs use authentication to confirm whether data has been accessed or tampered with, providing straightforward integrity control. Using pre-shared keys, a VPN can identify, authenticate and authorize user access.
