Who Does HIPAA Affect?
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act includes privacy and security rules, enforced by the U.S, government to uphold regulatory standards, for the protection and safety of patient data.
Individual patients are directly touched by HIPAA in a positive way, by having their identity and their electronically housed personal and sensitive health information protected.
Business organizations 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, are known as Covered Entities (CE), along with their Support and IT Service providers, and are considered the Business Associates (BA) of the CE.
