What is the HIPAA ?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, commonly known as HIPAA, is a series of standards, that regulates the use and disclosure of protected health information.
Health care organisations, as well as any organization that collects, creates, or transmits PHI must comply with HIPAA rules. These rules require the implementation of measures into business practices, in order to protect the privacy, security, and integrity of protected health information.
HIPAA compliance is regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services and enforced by the Office for Civil Rights, which also conducts HIPAA investigations.
By complying with HIPAA, you not only protect the privacy and security of your patient’s information but also protect your business from unintended consequences and monetary penalties.
