Medical Privacy (HIPAA)

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) created standards that govern the privacy of medical records. The HIPAA "Privacy Rule" regulates the use and disclosure of certain information held by health care clearinghouses, employer sponsored health plans, health insurers, and medical service providers. The law authorizes regulations on the use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI). PHI is any information held by a covered entity which concerns health status, provision of health care, or payment for health care that can be linked to an individual. This is interpreted to include any part of an individual's medical record or payment history.
