EDRMS' crucial role in HIPAA compliance

All healthcare organizations were required last year to become compliant with the Transaction Rule and Privacy Rule implemented as part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). The “Cliffs Notes” definition of HIPAA is to provide minimal and only necessary levels of confidential patient information to the healthcare community and other people/organizations requiring access to such information. As organizations have worked to meet the standards, electronic document and records management systems (EDRMS) have been recognized as a solid foundation for establishing HIPAA-compliant systems.
