Meet HIPAA Compliance Requirements

Protecting Health Information of US Citizens

Wide-Ranging Health Regulations

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is legislation that addresses a broad range of healthcare areas, including health insurance coverage, national standards, breach notifications, pre-tax spending accounts, group health plans, company-owned life insurance policies.

Security Standards for Electronic Health Records

Title II, known as the Administrative Simplification Provisions, mandates the adoption of Federal privacy protections for individually identifiable private health information (aka PHI, e-PHI, or EPHI). It applies to a wide variety of health industry organizations that transmits any health information in electronic form. It includes provisions that adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions and code sets, unique health identifiers, and security measures.
