Technical Safeguards, WordPress and HIPAA Compliance
Making your WordPress site HIPAA Compliant means meeting all the requirements set out by the Health and Human Services Department and the HIPAA Regulations. Overall, you need to follow the HIPAA Security Rule"s control requirements on technical safeguards.The Security Rule defines technical safeguards in § 164.304 as "the technology and the policy and procedures for its use that protect electronic protected health information and control access to it."These include:

In WordPress, this is possible with a combination of security configurations and plugins. You can take the standard installation and modify user roles, making sure that permissions work for administrators, the public, and staff.
As a reminder, the basic configurations in WordPress can be less than safe. Adjusting access controls may require plugins or custom configurations to ensure that PHI is protected. HIPAAtizer is a WordPress plugin that ensures that your forms and data are always HIPAA Compliant. The user-friendly access controls in the "Teams" sections allows Security Officers to control exactly who has access to PHI.
Audit controls are another necessary safeguard that any HIPAA-Compliant plugin must possess. This means that a Covered Entity must be able to monitor access and behavior within the software that contains PHI and ePHI. HIPAAtizer has full audit controls built into the system and each form submission is monitored by our system to track each time the PHI and ePHI have been accessed.
Integrity Controls are another requirement of HIPAA-Compliant WordPress hosting. These safeguards ensure that the Covered Entity and Business Associate are sure that data integrity is maintained at all times (i.e. that data is not destroyed or unintentionally altered). Plus, there should be a mechanism installed that can verify that alteration or destruction of data is not occurring.Person or entity authentication is another important technical safeguard. You can verify identities of users through various person or entity authentication methods. At a minimum, a Covered Entity or business associate will want to confirm the privileges and transmission device are valid. HIPAAtizer goes beyond the minimum requirements and requires both passwords and two-factor authorization for all Covered Entity users.Transmission security must be built into the Covered Entity's software. This protect against the possibility of compromise to the ePHI that is flowing through the infrastructure. All ePHI originating and stored in HIPAAtizer is encrypted and pdfs generated from forms submitted in our system are password protected.HIPAAtizer takes HIPAA Compliance Seriously!
