Numerous experts have advised that the best way to get started with your compliance program is to take stock of where you are today.

Complying with the HIPAA Security Final Rule itself and as amended by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, which was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009 involves many steps and considerations.
