HIPAA - An Overview

Understanding HIPAA and PHI

Since its institution in 1996, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (or HIPAA) aims to prevent healthcare fraud and ensure that all ‘protected health information’ is appropriately secured and to restrict access to health data to authorized individuals. If you have access to paper records, computers, information systems, networks, technology resources, including electronic medical records, and e-mails, you must follow HIPAA security policies, procedures and guidelines.
