What is HIPAA Compliance?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA, is a guarantee of patient privacy and confidentiality. Healthcare organizations such as care providers, clearinghouses, health plans, and any other entities that come across personal and sensitive information about anyone that they treat are required to safeguard this protected health information, also known as PHI. This means providing complete data privacy and impenetrable security provisions. Leaking a patient’s medical information, whether on purpose or through negligence is treated as a crime punishable under the law and also carries heavy financial penalties – which can be devastating to many practices.
