HIPAA Compliance

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, passed in 1996. HIPAA establishes national standards to protect individuals’ personal health information that is created, received, used or maintained by a covered entity. The regulations require appropriate administrative, physical and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and security of protected health information.  To learn more about HIPAA compliance, visit the US Department of Health and Human Services website.
