HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The HIPAA Act was developed by the federal government to protect the confidentiality of a person’s medical information. It specifies requirements for the use and release of health records, and establishes safeguards to protect the privacy of health information. This includes a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.Contact Us
