Is Your Business HIPAA compliant?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 was designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers.
Since then there have been rules added by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The HITECH act in 2009 involved the exchange of electronic protected health information (ePHI). The Omnibus Rule followed in 2013 changing the responsibilities of covered entities, business associates, and subcontractors.
