Privacy Rule (HIPAA)

The Privacy Rule was developed to:

Ensure that organizations that create and store health information take appropriate steps to protect this information from misuse or wrongful disclosure.

Provide individuals with the ability to understand and control how their health information is being used.

Complying with the Privacy Rule assures individuals seeking care that an organization is committed to keeping their information private and secure. Even if they’re not dealing directly with you, these individuals can rely on the HIPAA framework to ensure the privacy of their data across all relevant parties.
