HIPAA Overview

HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law August 21, 1996. This legislation affects nearly everyone involved in healthcare from providers to healthcare information systems vendors. HIPAA contains provisions for:

  • Portability of insurance coverage as employees move from one employer to another.
  • Protection of patient-identifiable data from inappropriate disclosure and the type of information that must be protected and the circumstances.
  • Defined policies, analyses, practices, and mechanisms that must be conducted to ensure the privacy of “protected health information” (PHI) is maintained.
  • Government-mandated standards for electronic transactions, code sets and identifiers.
