U.S. Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) in 1996, establishing rigorous requirements for maintaining patient data security and safeguarding individually identifiable health information beginning April 14th 2003. With HIPAA, medical providers are obligated to protect a patient’s private records while also allowing individuals access to their own health information. Each healthcare facility must provide sufficient documentation that all individuals with access to patients or their medical records have had adequate HIPAA training.
HIPAA was established to revolutionize the healthcare industry and bring down costs. It sought to streamline tedious administrative tasks and improve the confidentiality of patients’ health information, which continues to be one of its primary objectives today. As such, HIPAA compliance focuses largely on safeguarding patient data for total security and privacy.
