Although people might complain about HIPAA requirements I no longer feel that they have a leg to stand on. There is nothing outrageous in these requirements (except maybe one or two really quirky things) and the only real problem will be the way that the auditors interpret the HIPAA standards and how they are applied within an organization. Of course this is true of any standard. There will always be a negotiation of the level of protections compared to the risks involved. My personal feeling is that through HIPAA we have a standard, a overall policy, that is applicable to these specific organizations. We can point to these standards to when the organization fails to adequately protect the sensitive information with which they are entrusted.
See? It wasn't that difficult, now was it?
