Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), eighteen (18) identifiers classified as Protected Health Information (PHI) must be secured and treated with special care. This regulation applies to all Covered Entities, organizations involved in the course of providing and paying for healthcare, and their Business Associates. Failure to comply with HIPAA can result in civil and criminal penalties.
Why BayaTree eInfoGuard?
Covered Entities are increasingly asked to share data they generate in their normal course of providing services or conducting research. However, this data may contain information about patients or study participants, and sharing this could breach HIPAA confidentiality regulations. BayaTree eInfoGuard creates separate HIPAA-compliant repositories of de-identified data to support the needs of clinicians, researchers, and IT Departments.
