A Summit on Healthcare Privacy and Data Security: HIPAA and Beyond
Healthcare privacy and data security has become one of the major
policy, technology and operations issues in American healthcare.
Health plans and insurers are mandated to comply with Gramm-Leach-Bliley
by July 1, 2001. The HIPAA transactions and code sets regulations
are final and will become enforceable October, 2002. Final privacy
regulations were published last year, with an enforcement date of
April, 2003. The fate of the HIPAA privacy regulations hangs fire as the
Bush Administration determines whether and to what extent to amend
them. Pending HIPAA regulations on security and electronic signature
standards may be issued soon. HIPAA does not preempt more restrictive
state law. Thus, in effect, there are 50 state schemes in healthcare
privacy and security, subject to certain federal minimum standards.
This complex mix of federal and state law and regulation creates a
maze through which healthcare organizations must navigate.
Compliance will be not only complex, but also extremely costly as
healthcare moves to electronic data interchange and the Internet.
