    Do you have — and use — clear procedures in your practice to prevent, detect, contain, and correct security violations? The HIPAA Security Rule requires it. The HIPAA Security Rule aims to protect e-PHI confidentiality, integrity, and availability. The Security Rule offers detailed instructions for implementing particular standards, but some of these are “addressable.” This means each medical practice must decide whether it is a reasonable and appropriate safeguard in that practice’s environment.
