Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA):

The Administrative Simplification provisions of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA, Title II) require the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health plans, and employers. To date, the implementation of HIPAA standards has increased the use of electronic data interchange. Provisions under the Affordable Care Act of 2010 will further these increases and include requirements to adopt:

• operating rules for each of the HIPAA covered transactions
• a unique, standard Health Plan Identifier (HPID)
• a standard and operating rules for electronic funds transfer (EFT) and electronic remittance advice (RA) and claims attachments.

In addition, health plans will be required to certify their compliance. The Act provides for substantial penalties for failures to certify or comply with the new standards and operating rules.

Identity theft, stolen computer disks, malfunctioning computers, hackers, and other preventable losses of information-these are just a few of the hazards facing all businesses that receive, store, and transmit data in electronic form.  Many health care providers to face these same hazards.  Much of the electronic protected health information (EPHI) they hold is critical to their business and vital to the care of their patients.  Providers face major problems if their patients' sensitive information is stolen, misused, or unavailable.
