We’ve just published a new white paper: How the HIPAA Security Rule Impacts IT Due Diligence in Healthcare.

The HIPAA Security Rule, which establishes standards and requirements related to the storage and transmission of electronic protected health information, increases the risks and costs of working with this data.
Proper IT due diligence of healthcare providers and vendors requires a solid understanding of the HIPAA Security Rule, and must include a deeper dive into the technology issues related to the Rule.
