Data Management with HIPAA
Keep a Closed Circle of Access
To have the best security possible, make sure that only those who need access have it, and that those who have it can only access what they need. This means having strong access control so that people can only access limited sets of information based on their user role.
Centralized administration roles should only be accessible by the select few, and there should be multifactor authentication or another robust authentication method to get in.
Additionally, when a user will no longer be using the system and requests the removal of their PHI and deletes their account, administrators need to act promptly and remove the patient’s health information, account access, and the account itself from the system.
