The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule provides federal protections for individually identifiable health information held by covered entities and their business associates. The Security Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities and their business associates to use to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.
The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, amended HIPAA to require covered entities to create and implement information-security policies covering Protected Health Information (PHI) that is electronically transmitted or maintained.
