HIPAA compliance typically reinforces policy and procedure, focusing on attestation, but nothing technically prevents someone from viewing information they are not supposed to see. Security on the other hand enforces defense measures to prevent mishaps like this from happening. As healthcare continues to change and rely more on technology, we must address the differences between privacy and security, progressing to a more proactive and defensive approach to protecting patient’s electronic health records and properly controlling and providing access to secured data and devices. Although an organization can pass its HIPAA/HITECH audit 10 years in a row, they can still be problematic from a Cyber Security standpoint.
