HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 which imposes mandatory requirements on health care providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses. The HIPAA Privacy Rule provides restrictions on uses and disclosures of “protected health information”. The HIPAA Security Rule protects “protected health information” in an electronic record format. Title II requires administrative compliance from both employers and health care practitioners with national standards for the use, disclosure, and security of protected health information.
