The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has set several requirements on HIPAA-covered entities to safeguard patients’ Protected Health Information (PHI) and control when PHI can be disclosed and to whom. The Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and state attorneys general can issue penalties for HIPAA violations.
This whitepaper provides an overview of HIPAA, penalties for violation, who must comply with HIPAA, privacy rules and protected health information (PHI). This paper also discusses how Acalvio ShadowPlex can help healthcare providers, health plans and others comply with HIPAA.
