Regulated by the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Office for Civil Rights (OCR), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that established national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge.

In this post, we will explain the basic concepts involved in the process of becoming HIPAA compliant, outline what you can expect as you work towards compliance, and provide guidance based on our cumulative experience working closely with our customers and auditor partners.
