HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is a regulation designed to protect confidential healthcare information through improved security standards and federal privacy legislation. It defines requirements for storing patient information before, during, and after electronic transmission. It also identifies compliance guidelines for critical business tasks such as risk analysis, awareness training, audit trail, disaster recovery plans, and information access control and encryption.
The HIPAA regulation has three main components that apply to “covered entities” (a covered entity is any provider of healthcare services that charges the government or insurance for their services):
Standard Transaction Code Sets
Patient Information Privacy
Patient Information Security (both electronic and physical records)
