What is HIPAA?
What is HIPAA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law in the United States that regulates the control and access of sensitive healthcare information. Covered organizations under HIPAA include healthcare providers, health plans, and other entities that handle protected health information (PHI).
Violations of HIPAA can result in civil and criminal penalties, including fines and imprisonment. It is therefore essential that covered entities understand their obligations under HIPAA and have compliance policies and procedures in place to protect patient information by following HIPAA-approved processes in collaboration tools like Slack, Teams, and Zoom.
