SAM-HIPAA

A tool to help achieve compliance with the NIST SP 800-66 HIPAA Security Rule

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that determines the data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information.

SAM-HIPAA is a cloud based tool that helps organisations assess their compliance with the NIST SP 800-66 HIPAA Security Rule, create and manage Actions and allocate Tasks to work toward full compliance, track improvement along the way, and display easy to understand reports showing how well you are doing to date.

SAM-HIPAA Management Methodology

SAM-HIPAA tracks compliance against the six major functional requirements for the protection of electronically secured health information

  • Administrative Safeguards
  • Incidents and Contingencies
  • Physical Safeguards
  • Technical Safeguards
  • Organizational Requirements
  • Policies and Documentation

    SAM-HIPAA breaks these overarching requirements down into individual Categories and, for each of these, you can see how effectively your current processes, procedures and technology deployments
    meet the security requirements defined within NIST SP 800-66.

    At the base level of SAM-Protect are the Workplans with individual requirements precisely mapped and referenced to NIST SP 800-66. Establishing the level of completeness within these Workplans allows you to develop an overall picture of how effective your NIST SP 800-66 related controls are, and quickly identify areas that need extra activity.

    In common with all of the SAM for Compliance systems, integrated Action and Task Managers help you through the remediation and improvement process while the comprehensive reporting functionality enables you to easily communicate your compliance status with your Executives or compliance bodies.
