HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. HIPAA is a federal law that requires companies to adopt administrative, physical and technical measures to protect the security, privacy, integrity and availability of every individual's health information. Strict auditing and severe fines are both components of these sweeping regulations that have changed the way the healthcare industry does business.
