The Question is:
The following is taken from a white paper on VMS and Hippa compliance.
Question: Is there any other information that is more current in regards to
OpenVMS and Hippa compliance ?
" It is important to note the HIPAA implementation plan is behind schedule from
the original proposal. The security standards used for this paper have not
been formally approved and are still subject to change. It is worth mentioning
that the standards us
ed in this paper have been published since December 1999 and have not changed ".
The Answer is :
Please contact the support center for consulting services and/or for
standards-compliance assistance and information -- the OpenVMS Wizard
targets technical discussions and is not in a position to directly
assist with nor provide statements for US HIPPA compliance assurance,
nor with other regulatory compliance discussions or issues for US or
The OpenVMS Wizard expects that the services organization can offer
you assistance in complying with HIPPA -- far more than OpenVMS itself
is involved in such compliance, obviously.
For information on configuring and operating OpenVMS Security as well
as on related security information, please see the security manual.
