The IFGICT HIPAA
The IFGICT HC standard provides the national criteria for the security of particular health information retained or conveyed in electronic form as described by the Health and Human Service (HHS) department of the US.
IFGICT HC Standard is essential for the health care providers and other organizations involved in electronic operations such as electronic health records (HER), pharmacy, laboratory, radiology, and computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems. Though all these electronic techniques offer augmented efficacy and flexibility, they also significantly enhance the safety menaces to healthcare data.
IFGICT, the International Federation of Global and Green Information Communication Technology is the foremost ICT federation in the globe. It’s a self-governing organization formed to lead and fix the industry standards for the skill development in Information Communication Technology (ICT) and business technology. IFGICT provides top-quality examination and certification services globally in various international standards and excellent practice structures in the business and information technology fields.

IFGICT Healthcare Standard Compliance Policies
The organizations holding confidential patient data must have technical and physical security, according to HHS. Following perquisites are involved in physical safety:
- Access to the data should be limited. Only authorized people have access.
- Organizations must implement policies about the availability and utilization of electronic data.
- The relocation, removal, discarding, and reprocessing of electronic media and protected health information must be controlled.
- Electronic PHI must only be accessible to the official personnel. Accessibility control covers encryption, decryption, exclusive user IDs, automated logoff, emergency access process, tracking logs, and audit reports for recording activities on software and hardware.
Integrity measures also come under technical policies. For example, they verify that electronic PHI is not damaged or changed. In addition, organizations need to ensure no data transmission occurs through email, the internet, or private networks like private cloud.
