    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because of the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations. HIPAA ensures the privacy and security of patients' health information. The "need to know" rule means that individuals should only have access to the information they require to perform their job duties. This restriction helps to prevent unauthorized access and protect patients' confidentiality. Therefore, it is essential for individuals to limit their information access to only the authorized information.

    Check all of the following which  would support Security Measures for protecting electronic pHI.

    • A.

      Encryption of electronic information

    • B.

      Firewalls

    • C.

      Installed Antivirus software

    • D.

      Sharing individual passwords

    • E.

      Automatic two-minute screen lock

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Encryption of electronic information
    B. Firewalls
    C. Installed Antivirus software
    E. Automatic two-minute screen lock
    Explanation
    The correct answer is a combination of security measures that can protect electronic PHI (Protected Health Information). Encryption of electronic information ensures that the data is encoded and can only be accessed with the proper decryption key. Firewalls act as a barrier between internal and external networks, preventing unauthorized access. Installed antivirus software helps detect and remove malicious software that could compromise the security of PHI. Automatic two-minute screen lock is a security measure that ensures that if a device is left unattended, it will lock itself after a certain period of inactivity, preventing unauthorized access. Sharing individual passwords is not a security measure and can lead to unauthorized access.
