HIPAA Compliance and Digital Health

In early August, I presented at an Information Security & the Law Meetup in Silicon Valley on the topic of “HIPAA Compliance: The Software Development Perspective”.   The presentation focused on the role of developers in the compliance process.  I focused on compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), but the principles discussed will apply to compliance with other laws and regulations as well.

The HIPAA Security Rule imposes information technology security and breach notification requirements on HIPAA covered entities (healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses), as well as their business associates.  Medical device manufacturers, software companies, and online service providers may not automatically fall under the scope of the HIPAA Security Rule, but their products and services affect HIPAA compliance efforts of their covered entity and business associate customers.  This talk will cover what medical device, software, and online service companies need to know about how HIPAA will impact their development processes.
