Focusing on HIPPA compliance in design
Last week's poll question on HEALTHCARE DESIGN asked:
A recent blog post addressed HIPPA compliance and design considerations. When designing interiors, how much focus is directed toward HIPPA compliance?
33.33% - It is the first thing we take into consideration
66.67% - We already integrate HIPPA compliance into our designs and don’t focus on it directly
0.00% - It is not a focus, rather something we check at the end of the design process
Code compliance, federal, state, local, is always a first stop to check at the beginning of the design process. It goes hand-n-hand with project program verification.
HIPPA compliance doesn't start with interior design... it starts in programming.
