Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Handling and processing personal health information (PHI) as with electronic medical records (EMR) requires companies and perssonel to adhere to a plethora of strict Federal and State regulations such as HIPAA, HITECH, and Massachusetts 201 CMR 1700, and failure to do so can lead to serious financial, and in some cases criminal, consequences. All companies should have a comprehensive information security strategy, and those that handle EMR or PHI should be familiar with Federal/State regulations and ensure compliance accordingly. The strategy is simple, know the regulations and adhere accordingly.
