Patient Privacy

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 2006 mandated significant changes to the regulations governing the provision of health benefits, the delivery of and payment for healthcare services as well as the security and confidentiality of individually identifiable, protected health information (PHI).

  • The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides for the privacy of an individual's health information.
  • The HIPAA Security Rule provides for the security of an individual's health information when the information is transmitted electronically.
