Rich Silva, Founder and President of Pain Point IT Solutions Inc., describes some of the complications concerning health information privacy and accountability rules. Before 1996, most hospital and other medical records were kept on paper and were easily available to persons other than a patient’s doctor and the patient. As part of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA) and its later extensions, the privacy of medical information is assured and kept in electronic form. Pain Point IT Solutions as part of its services helps medical providers and their business associates follow the rules, which are enforced by a 164-point audit by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources. One problem of special significance is disaster recovery of information; even though all information has been backed up, without help it may require days to restore it.
