Wiretap is able to protect the privacy of patients by keeping information secure within ESNs, removing sensitive and personally identifiable information.
Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA)
Wiretap record retention can be utilized to manage records and information shared to enhance patient safety — as well as safeguard sensitive patient data within collaboration groups.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH)
Wiretap can help protect against the increased potential legal liability for non-compliance under this act, providing a layer of security for data breach notifications and unauthorized uses and disclosures.
The Privacy Act of 1974
Wiretap records retention can be utilized to manage the requirements of this act to keep records of conversations or information shared about individuals over ESN as well as enforcing “fair information practices” when gathering and handling personal data — avoiding costly lawsuits for mishandling information.
Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (the Privacy Rule)
Wiretap helps manage the rules of this act that sets specific boundaries on the use and release of health records, and establishes safeguards to protect the privacy of health information.
Wiretap policies can help ensure customer information is protected under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) act.
