HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act)
HIPAA is a federal act enacted in 1996 for incremental healthcare reform. It was revised in 2009 with the ARRA/HITECH Act and in 2013 with the Omnibus Rule.
HIPAA’s intent is to reform the healthcare industry by reducing costs, simplifying administrative processes and burdens, and improving the privacy and security of patients’ health information.
It includes Healthcare Providers, Hospitals, Clinics, Insurance Companies and any Business Associate.
HIPAA Regulations require organizations to do a periodic risk assessment and have Administrative, Physical and Technical safeguards in place.
HIPAA requires any organization or person who has access to protected health information to have policies, procedures and training in place.
HIPAA Training and Regulations include HIPAA Privacy and Security.
OCR conducts compliance reviews and investigates complaints for HIPAA violations.
OCR works with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to refer criminal violations of HIPAA.
HHS’ Office for Civil Rights is responsible for enforcing the HIPAA Rule.
Penalties for violation can range from $100 to $50,000 per violation with a maximum penalty of $1.5 million per year.
OCR showcases “Wall of Shame” for all breaches reported.
