The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a US law designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients' medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers.
HIPAA mandates industry-wide standards for protection and confidentiality of protected health information (PHI), both technical and in terms of processes.
the HITECH Act widens the scope of privacy and security protections available under HIPAA; it increases the potential legal liability for non-compliance; and it provides for more enforcement.
