The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was created in 1996 in the U.S to protect the health insurance of its citizens and establish national standards for electronic health care transactions. The standards created by HIPAA are designed to improve the healthcare system’s efficiency and effectiveness.
A primary element of HIPAA compliance addresses the security and privacy of healthcare-related data. This element is supported by two complementary rules: the Privacy Rule refers to all paper- and electronic-based healthcare information, and the Security Rule specifically covers all healthcare information that is electronically protected, stored, or transmitted. The Security Rule has three security standards required for compliance: administrative safeguards, physical safeguards, and technical safeguards.
