What is HIPAA?

HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, was enacted by the US Congress in 1996. It was designed to ensure the portability and continuity of health insurance coverage for individuals, safeguard the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI), and establish standards for electronic health transactions. HIPAA, which consists of several rules including the Privacy Rule, Security Rule, Enforcement Rule, and Breach Notification Rule, stipulates how healthcare organizations must handle patient data. Compliance is mandatory for any organizations that have access to PHI.

Why Is HIPAA Compliance Important?

First and foremost, HIPAA compliance safeguards the privacy and security of patients’ sensitive health information (known as protected health information or PHI), preserving their rights to privacy and confidentiality. Furthermore, the high value of data managed by healthcare organizations and their partners makes them attractive targets for cyber attacks. Therefore, taking a proactive approach to HIPAA compliance is necessary to protect organizations handling PHI from catastrophic data breaches.

Finally, HIPAA noncompliance can be extremely costly, both monetarily and otherwise. Failing to comply with HIPAA may result in fines, criminal charges, civil lawsuits, corrective action plans, potential loss of eligibility for government healthcare programs, and more.

Protect Patient Information

Health information is among the most sensitive data an organization can manage. HIPAA compliance ensures this information is secure.

Prevent Data Breaches

Healthcare organizations are prime targets for cyber attacks. HIPAA compliance ensures your organization is adequately protected from data breaches.

Avoid Serious Penalties

HIPAA compliance is taken extremely seriously. Failing to meet requirements can result in a range of penalties and fines.
