Health Care - HIPAA HITECH Act
Federal and States Governments have signed laws and issued multiple regulations designed to protect personal and medical data of patients. HIPAA is the most powerful of them. Every clinic, every pharmacy, every HMO or PPO, every data processing company must comply with them. In addition to steep fines, some of these laws and regulations stipulate criminal liability.
The HITECH Act, devised by Congress primarily to address electronic medical records, is being noted for its impact in adding a tough data-breach notification requirement to the long list of long-existing Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
With the increasing threat of medical identity theft looming and expanding state/federal/industry regulations regarding data security, healthcare organizations are taking steps to prevent loss or exposure of sensitive patient data.
