What is HIPAA Compliance?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance is adherence to the physical, administrative, and technical safeguards outlined in HIPAA, which covered entities and business associates must uphold to protect the integrity of Protected Health Information (PHI).

Why is HIPAA important?

The HIPAA Act establishes minimum standards for the privacy and security of protected health information. As breaches have become more prevalent in the healthcare space, safeguarding PHI has never been more important.

Without adequate privacy and security protections, breaches are inevitable. PHI compromised in a breach can lead to identity theft and financial fraud, and without proper breach notification, patients affected by a breach may be unaware that they are at risk.



Under the Security Rule, confidential ePHI is that ePHI that may not be made available or disclosed to unauthorized persons.



Maintaining the integrity of ePHI means not altering or destroying it in an unauthorized way.



Security Rule defines Availability as the possibility of obtaining or using PHI on demand and by an authorized person.
