This book examines business continuity planning as adapted to encompass the requirements of The Health Care Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, or HIPAA.
It examines the typical business continuity planning model and highlight how the special requirements of HIPAA have shifted the emphasis.
The layout of this book was designed to provide assistance, hints, and templates to the person charged with the task of implementing business continuity planning into a healthcare organization.
The HIPAA regulations and the "Comments and Responses" in the federal register make clear that the "Contingency Plan" (read Business Continuity Plan) requirements were written by those looking to protect health information data. Many of the examples in this book relate to information technology and disaster recovery (recovery of computer capabilities).
Recovering the computer systems of a health care organization will not necessarily get it operational again after a disaster; a multitude of other production components must be present in order to deliver services and products to customers/patients. This book identifies procedures and strategies that are unique to healthcare provider organizations.
This book is designed for the people who are responsible for implementing a plan in a healthcare organization that comes under the scope of the HIPAA regulations. Who is affected? The answer is health plans, providers, health care clearing houses, and some others. Health plans include individual or group plans that provide or pay the cost of medical care. It also includes employers who self-insure. Providers include a provider of medical or other health services and any other person furnishing health care services or supplies. Health care clearing houses are public or private entities that process or facilitate the processing of nonstandard data elements of health information into standard data elements. Finally, the "other" category which includes employers who want to do data mining and pharmaceutical companies that conduct clinical research.
