HIPAA Compliance

What is HIPAA

HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is a set of privacy and security regulations enforced by the U.S. government to uphold regulatory standards for the protection of delicate medical data.

Businesses tasked with processing, maintaining and storing protected health information (PHI) are responsible for following and meeting the rules set forth by HIPAA with their infrastructure and solutions. These organizations include those providing healthcare treatment, payment, or operations, and are known as Covered Entities (CE), along with their Support and IT Service providers, which are considered the Business Associates (BA) of the CE.
