What is HIPAA Compliance?
HIPAA requires medical practices to employ administrative, technical, and physical safeguards that protect the privacy of patient’s protected health information (PHI). This federal law provides privacy rights to patients and sets conditions for how their health information can be used and disclosed. Practices that fail to comply with HIPAA requirements are subject to serious penalties.
