What is HIPAA?

Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a U.S. federal law that regulates how companies can access and use personal health information (PHI). PHI includes a person’s medical history, test and laboratory results and other data.

Who needs to comply with HIPAA?

Any company that has access to PHI must achieve and maintain HIPAA compliance.

What are the three rules of HIPAA?

Before defining the three rules of HIPAA, it is important to understand the difference between a covered entity and a business associate:

  • A covered entity is any entity that is a healthcare provider, provides a health plan or is a healthcare clearinghouse.
  • A business associate is “a person or entity that performs certain functions or activities that involve the use or disclosure of protected health information on behalf of, or provides services to, a covered entity.”

This rule regulates when a covered entity may disclose PHI without a patient’s express written authorization, and when they cannot. If a covered entity discloses any PHI, it should take care to disclose the minimum amount necessary to achieve its purpose.

Security Rule

This rule requires covered entities and business associates to put technical, physical and administrative safeguards in place to keep PHI safe.

Breach Notification Rule

This rule requires business associates to notify covered entities if they know a breach occurred, and covered entities to notify patients affected by a breach of PHI.
