The healthcare industry deals with some of the most sensitive data in the world. Healthcare data often contains incredibly revealing details about patients, from medical diagnoses to treatment plans to photographs. That’s where the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) comes in. HIPAA protects patients’ sensitive health information from disclosure in the absence of their knowledge or consent.
While HIPAA puts many patients’ minds at ease, it can be a major headache for healthcare organizations and other HIPAA-covered entities who must rigorously comply with the law or risk investigations, hearings, and even fines.
