IT organizations must ensure EHRs are not deleted, corrupted, tampered with, or stolen. HIPAA privacy and security rules apply to data maintained on-premises, in a hosted facility, or in the cloud. The U.S. Federal Government and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) do not require or recognize HIPAA audits or other certifications. The onus is on each healthcare organization to ensure its IT systems and practices comply with HIPAA data privacy and security requirements.
