Blue Karma Security understands that many public and private healthcare providers and numerous payors around the world continue to face a disconcerting set of challenges. There is a growing need to have sustainable and secure patient health information exchanges (HIEs) put into place. And HIEs face considerable challenges in the coming months. They need to build communities, connect as many constituents as possible, and keep information flowing securely throughout their regions.

We realize that the proper handling of health information has become exponentially more complex. HIPAA compliance requirements have changed, which enhances patient privacy rights and protections, and includes more stringent enforcement of HIPAA security and privacy protections.

The fact is that outdated or disjointed IT systems do not support collaborative data exchange among national healthcare agencies, hospitals, insurers, doctors and patients.

Our services enable you to securely integrate and exchange private healthcare, administrative and financial information across different platforms.

Also, we understand the importance behind ensuring the security of protected health information (PHI) in your health IT system.

There are administrative safeguards that are required by both the HIPAA Privacy Rule and the HIPAA Security Rule.  The administrative safeguards required under the HIPAA Security Rule include:

  • Identifying relevant information systems
  • Conducting a risk assessment
  • Implementing a risk management program
  • Acquiring IT systems and services
  • Creating and deploying policies and procedures
  • Developing and implementing a sanctions policy
