Overview

Created almost 20 years ago, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) continues to play a significant role in the everyday practice of health care professionals and their business associates. Maintaining the privacy and security of patient information is more challenging than ever with the increased use of portable electronic devices, such as laptops and mobile phones. Modifications have been made to HIPAA over the last few years as a result of the HITECH Act of 2009 and the Omnibus Final Rule of 2013. These changes: Strengthened existing HIPAA requirements for Privacy and Security. Expanded individual's rights relating their Protected Health Information (PHI). Increased enforcement of HIPAA, including higher fines for non-compliance. Addressed notification for breaches of PHI.
