The Effects of HIPAA on Privacy and Security

Matthew Hicks

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is federal legislation that addresses issues ranging from health insurance coverage to national standard identifiers for healthcare providers. The portions that are important for our purposes are those that deal with protecting the privacy (confidentiality) and security (safeguarding) of health data, which HIPAA calls Protected Health Information or PHI. The presentation will discuss how HIPAA Privacy and Security affects patients and the medical community.
