The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), also known as the Kennedy-Kassebaum Act, was enacted by the US Congress in 1996 to enable better access to health insurance, reduce fraud and abuse, and lower the overall cost of health care in the United States. Title II of HIPAA, the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for the use and dissemination of health care information. In order to comply with HIPAA, CEs must have organization-wide policies, procedures, reporting applications, and technologies in place to secure protected information, much of which is communicated electronically through email and FTP.
