The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that was enacted to ensure the protection of an individual's protected health information (PHI). The Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (Privacy Rule) issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established detailed national standards for the protection of PHI. In general, HIPAA protects individuals from the unauthorized use or disclosure of any PHI.
Being HIPAA compliant brings a host of benefits, including:
- Protection against medical identity theft
- Increased customer confidence through a higher level of data security
- Increased protection against financial losses
- Enhanced customer trust and a safeguarded reputation
Enforcing security measures for compliance purposes can be challenging if you don't have the required devices and if your employees are not proficient in utilizing these devices. Protected Health information might leak when there's a lack of proper handling of confidential information or if the current system allows leakage through a blind spot or a loophole on your side.
