Do the standards of the Security Rule require use of specific technologies?


No. The Security standards were designed to be "technology neutral" in order to facilitate use of the latest and most promising technologies that meet the needs of different healthcare organizations. Any regulatory requirement for implementation of specific technologies would bind the health care community to specific systems and/or software that may be superseded by rapidly developing technologies and improvements.
