Privacy & Security
We are developing resources to help you navigate the complex and rapidly evolving healthcare privacy and security challenges facing our industry.
The HIMSS Privacy and Security Committee goal: "By 2014, all entities who use, send, or store health information meet requirements for confidentiality, integrity, availability and accountability based on sound risk management practices, using recognized standards and protocols."
HIMSS has launched several work groups that are actively involved with industry changing activities to achieve this goal.
