Moving Toward Compliance 2 II. Health Regulations and Laws Ramifications A.

HIPAA compliance should be a top priority in any healthcare organization. “This is especially critical as technology continues to evolve and more covered entities continue to implement innovative tools such as mobile devices and HIEs. However, having a thorough understanding of the federal requirements for HIPAA compliance also means that healthcare organizations must understand the potential consequences of HIPAA violations.
