OREM, Utah, June 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- To more easily decipher complicated Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) security requirements, SecurityMetrics produced the HIPAA Snippets series, a sequence of 60-second videos outlining best practices for healthcare practices to comply with technical HIPAA requirements. Tackling topics such as social media compliance and remote access, HIPAA Snippets covers complex subjects in ways office managers nationwide can understand.

Many small to mid-size healthcare organizations find it difficult to keep up with HIPAA compliance requirements. Often, the responsibility of risk management and compliance falls to overburdened office managers or physicians who lack security training.

"The HIPAA Snippets series is designed to teach data security in a manner that is as enjoyable as it is instructive," said SecurityMetrics VP of Business Operations, Russell Stay. "Our goal is to painlessly deliver compliance and peace of mind. Devoting as little as 10 minutes each week to privacy and security rules can create demonstrable progress towards HIPAA compliance."

SecurityMetrics distinguishes itself from other HIPAA compliance vendors by liberating the administrator of complex data security responsibilities, explaining technical requirements in simple terms, and allowing them to spend more time on the important healthcare duties in which they were trained to excel.
