SisAdmin Receives HIPAA Security Rule Compliance Report
Independent Auditors Verifies SisAdmin’s Compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule
Snohomish, WA – SisAdmin, LLC, an outsourced information technology provider, today announced that it has completed its HIPAA audit. This independent review of their information security control structure demonstrates their compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets a national standard for the protection of consumers’ Protected Health Information (PHI) and electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) by mandating risk management best practices and physical, administrative, and technical safeguards. HIPAA was established to provide greater transparency for individuals whose information may be at risk, and the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights enforces compliance with the HIPAA Privacy, Security, and Breach Notification Rules.
The goal of the HIPAA Security Rule is to create security for ePHI by ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI, protecting against threats, protecting against unpermitted disclosures, and ensuring workforce compliance.
“We determined from our review that SisAdmin has good technical controls in place in accordance with industry-accepted standards, and appropriate physical and environmental controls and is in compliance with all HIPAA Security Rule standards,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “KirkpatrickPrice’s independent audit determined that all access controls to ePHI stored on SisAdmin’s systems are in compliance with HIPAA requirements.”
