Healthcare providers and any organizations handling confidential digital data on their behalf are legally obligated to operate under stringent security standards. Two of these acts are especially important for all such entities operating in the US or providing services to US citizens: HIPAA and HITECH.
Introduced in 1996, HIPAA is meant to protect health insurance coverage for anyone changing or leaving their jobs as well as set basic data security standards pertaining to the protection of personal health information (PHI). The HITECH Act, introduced in 2009, expands upon the security and privacy protections of HIPAA.
