HIPAA Compliance and Confidentiality of Customer Data
On August 21, 1996, President Clinton signed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, known as HIPAA. This law impacts all areas of the health care industry and was designed to improve the efficiency of health care by standardizing the exchange of administrative and financial data, and to protect the privacy, confidentiality and security of health care information.
