What is HIPAA Act?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, 1996 or simply HIPAA – is a federal law that shields the disclosure of patient’s Protected Health Information (PHI) in the US and for their business associates worldwide. HIPAA Compliance is considered a vital culture that healthcare entities must integrate into their business to secure the privacy, integrity, and security of sensitive patient health information.
