US Health Insurance Portability And Accountability Act (HIPAA)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 introduced national standards in the United States for the handling of electronic health care data. HIPAA was designed to address systemic inefficiencies and increase the effectiveness of the US health care system through the establishment of policy, standards and requirements addressing the electronic transmission of Personal Health Information (PHI). By doing so, fraud, waste and abuse could be identified and corrective actions undertaken.

To mitigate this risk, Congress introduced Federal privacy protection standards into HIPAA. Over subsequent years, the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Enforcement Rule and then final Omnibus rule including Breach Notification Rules were introduced.

These rules mandate standards of handling and protection for individually identifiable health information; PHI.
