How to Be HIPAA Certified

A primary concern for new healthcare organizations is how to get HIPAA certified. The truth is, there is no such thing as “HIPAA certification.”   

Specifically, there is no certifying body for HIPAA. Anyone who claims this is fooling themselves or the reader.

So, what is HIPAA certified, then? And is there HIPAA certified software? As previously stated, HIPAA certification is a designation that does not exist within the industry. It is often confused with HIPAA compliance.
