Compliance and protection for pharmacy owners

Posted by
A pizza joint has to worry about PCI compliance. PCI Compliance is securing their customer’s credit card and personal information. A hospital has to worry about HIPAA compliance. HIPAA compliance is securing a patient’s personal information.
What if you have to worry about both?
Pharmacies are in this unique situation. They are receiving information on a customer’s prescription. This falls under HIPAA. They then have to charge the customer via credit card. This falls under PCI.
Which one is more important?
That’s a loaded question. A violation of either can result is massive fees, fines and bad PR. So both are equal and extremely important. A slip up, and you could lose your pharmacy. Fees, fines and loss of business can often

HITECH Privacy and Security Regulations Update

Posted by Jason Luke
While the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) of 2009 is over two years old, most people do not realize that many of its requirements are not fully in place yet, specifically the data security and privacy requirements.
Originally, many of HITECH's requirements around privacy and security were supposed to be effective on February 17, 2010. HHS has stated that the expected date of compliance and enforcement of these new requirements, except for the data breach rules, will be delayed until a period after the issuance of the final rules, which are not out yet. Recently, the HHS announced that the final rules implementing HITECH's changes to privacy, security, and data breach notification will be issued together sometime this year,

There is substantial disagreement as to whether the Security Rule actually requires all the logging that would be necessary to meet this new reporting requirement, and it is doubtful that most companies could easily accommodate such a request. Essentially, this
