Designing HIPAA Technical Safeguards Discussion 3

Imagine you are an Information Security consultant for a small doctor’s office consisting of three (3) doctors, two (2) nurses, and one (1) receptionist. The office is physically located among several other professional office spaces. The doctors utilize mobile devices over a wireless network to document patient visits, with the electronic patient records being stored on a server located within the building. Additionally, each doctor’s office has a desktop computer that utilizes a wired network to access the server and electronic patient records. The receptionist station has a desktop computer that is used to schedule appointments, but cannot access patient records. In 1996, Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) to help citizens maintain their health insurance coverage and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the American health care system. You have been hired to ensure HIPAA technical safeguards are appropriately designed to preserve the integrity of protected health information maintained in the doctor’s office.
Write a three (900 words) page paper in which you:
Analyze proper physical access control safeguards and provide sound recommendations to be employed in the doctor’s office.
Recommend the proper audit controls to be employed in the doctor’s office.
Analyze methods and provide sound recommendations to ensure integrity of the electronic protected health information.
Suggest three (3) logical access control methods to restrict unauthorized entities from accessing sensitive information, and explain why you suggested each method.
Analyze the means in which data moves within the organization and identify techniques that may be used to provide transmission security safeguard.
Use at least three (3) quality resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and similar Websites do not qualify as quality resources. APA formatting and use subtitles

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
