A federal law, known as "HIPAA" (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) requires health care providers to implement a comprehensive approach to protect the privacy of personal health information (PHI). There are nine parts to HIPAA, but our immediate compliance will focus on three areas:
The Privacy Rule regulates the use and distribution of identifiable health information and gives individuals the right to determine and restrict access to their health information. Compliance with HIPAA's privacy regulations will be required beginning April 14, 2003. Substantial penalties, both civil and criminal, may be imposed for noncompliance.
The HIPAA Security Rule mandates that reasonable and appropriate technical, physical, and administrative safeguards be implemented with electronic identifiable health information. We must ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic protected health information we create, receive, maintain or transmit. Compliance date for the Security Rule is October 16, 2003.
