HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA; Pub.L. 104–191, 110 Stat. 1936, enacted August 21, 1996) was enacted by the United States Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. It has been known as the Kennedy–Kassebaum Act or Kassebaum–Kennedy Act after two of its leading sponsors. Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.

I need to keep networked 2 medical devices (Zeiss eye scanners) that run Win XP embedded. However HIPPA does not like XP. To upgrade to the latest would cost many thousands MANY.

The devices just need to send a PDF to a network share.

I am looking for the best way to segment out the XP machines and still satisfy HIPPA requirements.

One thing I cant do is just unplug the network and use a usb drive because the devices are used many times a day and would hamper workflow.

I have considered removing the gateway on the XP pcs and also adding strict firewall rules (sonicwall)

Also thought of using a win 10 pc with 2 nics for 2 different subnets to act as a go between

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Become a CompTIA Certified Healthcare IT Tech

This course will help prep you to earn the CompTIA Healthcare IT Technician certification showing that you have the knowledge and skills needed to succeed in installing, managing, and troubleshooting IT systems in medical and clinical settings.

We like to delegate the HIPAA (or similar mandates) Security Officer role of monitoring logs, current authorized users, analyze traffic, etc to the HR, Nurse, IT point person, etc in an under 20 maybe even an 100 employee environment .   They will review logs to identify users that may still have access to ePHI but are either no longer with the organization or have a business relationship requiring access. Determine if generic accounts are used which do not support logging individual’s access to ePHI.  The reality after reading the "Information System Activity Review" policy and procedure listed below is this task is incredibly arduous task for an individual to take on even for a small network.  I researched Netwrix Auditor, Managed Engine, NetCrunch a few but need feedback on the best system for delegating the task and hand off to a small business.  I'm considering going away from Sonicwalls because Watchguard's log interface apppears to be better.   Alternatively, is there any specific RMM agent that incorporates what we are looking in this policy/procedure featured below.   Regardless, we need easy deployment, elegant interface, and it just works.  It's easy to work with whether or not we hand this off to the client or we decide to incorporate in our …

I am seeking a script that will do the following:

Take a file folder and rename it to a common standard across the entire organization.
Take each file within a folder and rename it to a common standard using the existing file name.

I actually have the file folder portion completed, as the powershell

Get-ChildItem -Filter "*current*" -Recurse | Rename-Item -NewName {$_.name -replace 'current','old' }

However, the issue is that the file names used are all over the board.  Examples, amongst a horde of others:

Christopher, Jack 4.2014
Christopher, Jack 042014
Christopher Jack 04-02-2014
Jack Christopher April 2014

What I would like to do is implement a standard of:

JChristopher 042014

So the script should look at the entire file name and then rename it accordingly.

Yes.  There are subfolders sometimes 4 layers deep in some instances, and I can address that separately.

However, there are literally 8K files (not file size), but files that need to meet this new standard.

It's a non-profit who were erroneously informed that they did NOT have to meet HIPPA requirements even though they work with PHI of SP adults.

I know this should be simple, with everything else that is going on, I figured it wouldn't hurt to just ask.  Perhaps someone has already encountered something similar?

Server 2012R2, workstations all running W10Pro.

Thanks,

our company is required to have HIPAA hosting and network. I understood we can consult with HIPAA consultant but we first want to learn what a company should do if the company wants to be HIPAA.

Our company has small office with just 10 employees. Only PC. no server. Physically, it is very simple.
We have only one website as well. and of  course hope to get HIPAA protected as well.

If you have been in this situation, share with me what/how should get start will definitely help.
