A few readers wanted some additional details about how to specifically address information security for healthcare IT based on my HIPAA article yesterday. It seems I forgot to mention that we should all review the guidelines provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in its HIPAA Resource Guide. It’s specific and actionable so it’s a great place to start. Keep in mind though that these standards are very high-level and do not deal with specific security issues for specific systems. They are a general framework for some of the requirements.
