This white paper aims to help organizations understand the value of encrypting electronic protected health information (ePHI). While much of the content is focused on the background of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and its specific requirements, a portion is devoted to outlining implementation methods offered by sources such as the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Office for Civil Rights (OCR), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The main objective is to ensure that organizations fully understand appropriate courses of action to satisfy the encryption requirements as defined by HIPAA.
