The HIPAA Compliance Hub
Your ultimate introduction to the fundamentals of HIPAA compliance. Find curated best practices and resources for security and privacy beginners all in one place.
Welcome to the HIPAA Compliance Hub by Secureframe
In today’s modern healthcare system, patients don’t just entrust their care providers with their health — but an abundance of sensitive personal data as well. HIPAA legislation mandates that organizations that handle this personal data take clear steps to protect its security and confidentiality. By becoming HIPAA compliant, companies can establish a strong security and privacy compliance posture, build patient trust, and avoid committing costly HIPAA violations.
However, not every organization has a dedicated compliance expert on staff, leaving many company leaders navigating the road to compliance on their own.
Here at Secureframe, we’re passionate about security and privacy compliance because it can improve internal processes, prevent costly data breaches, build customer trust, and fuel sustainable growth. Understanding the underlying purpose, advantages, and requirements of HIPAA compliance can help growing companies demystify the compliance process and benefit from best-in-class security and privacy practices.
We’ve put together this HIPAA Compliance Hub to explain core concepts and terms, answer common questions, and share strategies and best practices for getting and staying compliant. We’ve also linked to articles on the Secureframe blog, plus our library of ebooks and resources. We hope you enjoy it!
