Application Note: HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is the catalyst for change in healthcare. Enacted on August 21, 1996, its purpose is to enable better access to health insurance, reduce fraud and abuse, and lower the overall cost of healthcare in the United States. Title 1, the first to be defined, protects health insurance coverage for workers when they change or lose their jobs. Title 2, The Administrative Simplification provisions, define rules for privacy, transaction sets (primarily Electronic Data Interchange) and security.
