Much of the coverage of The Health Insurance Portability and Accounting
Act (HIPAA) has centered on the regulatory requirements it places on the
healthcare industry. However, the Act is designed to safeguard
Protected Health Information (PHI) while also allowing for the
electronic flow of data needed to provide and promote high-quality care.
Balancing these two requirements can be tricky. But not complying with
these guidelines can result in lawsuits, substantial fines from the US
Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and cause irreparable
damage to your company’s reputation.
