Is Life QI HIPAA compliant?
What is HIPPA?
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a US Federal legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information. HIPAA includes provisions to protect the security and privacy of protected health information (PHI). PHI includes a very wide set of personally identifiable health and health-related data, including insurance and billing information, diagnosis data, clinical care data, and lab results such as images and test results.
HIPAA was expanded in 2009 by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. HIPAA and HITECH establish a set of federal standards intended to protect the security and privacy of PHI.
