Term of the Week: HIPAA

By July 18, 2011

Follow me on:

HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.

Although The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been around since 1996, it's only become a more familiar term in the healthcare industry since the implementation of the Privacy Rule in 2001. The Privacy Rule was designed to specifically address the protection of an individual's personal health information. It is important for the vitality of your medical office to maintain HIPAA compliance.

Avoid violating HIPAA Laws
