The HIPAA “Technical Safeguards” focus on the technology that protects PHI and controls access to it. Remember, HIPAA does not specify the type of technology an organization must use. Instead, it sets forth the following categories of standards or guidelines:
- Access Control
- Audit Controls
- Transmission Security
