HIPAA compliance is changing in 2023. New ways of working in the healthcare industry, the migration to digital, and evolving technologies have driven updates to the HIPAA privacy rule, set to take effect in 2023. But it’s not just the official rules that have changed; it’s also the approach to compliance.
If the evolution of HIPAA is necessary, then a shift in mindset is also necessary. Healthcare organizations must protect PHI (protected health information) and continue building trust with their patients, which they can do with the proper considerations.
