What Is HIPAA Compliance?
HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.
This act was passed by the United States Congress in 1996, primarily in order to help American employees maintain health insurance coverage during times of job loss or change.
However, the act also aims to reduce abuse and fraud in the healthcare sector, mandate a set of protocol standards for certain healthcare-related processes, and protect the handling of protected and confidential health information.
Any healthcare organization that handles protected health information (PHI) must ensure HIPAA compliance. Officially, protected health information includes medical-related records that identify a patient or patients and that were created in relation to or during the course of health care services.
When HIPAA is violated — even in the smallest way — serious penalties will ensue.
