Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

Request our Requirements for HIPAA Entities

Introduction

HIPAA, otherwise known as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability act, which was first introduced in 1996, demanded that the department for human services and health in the U.S. (HHS) should create specific regulations to protect the security and privacy of health information. In order to properly fulfill this new requirement, the HHS published the HIPPA security rule, and the HIPAA privacy rule. The privacy rule, otherwise referred to as the standards for privacy of individual health information, establishes the standards that should be used nationally to protect health information. The security rule addresses the non-technical and technical safeguards that covered entities needed in place to ensure individuals’ information (or e-PHI) remains secure.
