e importance of healthcare

Healthcare and HIPAA compliance are basically unimportant in the context of IT services.

The reason people don’t talk about it much is because the HIPAA security and privacy rules are so vague that they are largely irrelevant in terms of measurable technical safeguards.

If the rules were clearly spelled out in such a way that if we did A, B, and C, we would be considered compliant, and the industry and NIST security standards would do the job for us, that would be best.

But since some of you reading this article may be in the healthcare industry or working with organizations that serve healthcare companies, we decided to match some of the acceptable technical applications with the language used.
