In August of 1996, Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA.)
The goals of the legislation are to reduce the administrative costs of healthcare, to develop standard transactions for consistency industry wide, to require broad security and disaster recovery protections for “individually identifiable healthcare information,” to promote confidentiality of patient records and to provide an incentive for the healthcare companies to communicate electronically.
Any health care organization, office, or plan that electronically maintains or transmits health information pertaining to an individual must comply with HIPAA regulations. These federally governed regulations require strict standards for security and disaster recovery.
