HIPAA Compliances

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and, in part, establishes rules for maintaining the patient’s privacy and security of their health information. HIPAA rules apply to “covered entities,” which include health plans and health care clearing houses (such as billing services and community health information systems). These rules also apply to healthcare providers that transmit healthcare data in a way that is regulated by HIPAA (for example, healthcare providers transmitting patient records to PRC).
