The Congress of the United States enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) on August
21, 1996. This law impacts all areas of the health care industry and was designed to provide insurance portability, to
improve the efficiency of health care by standardizing the exchange of administrative and financial data, and to protect
the privacy, confidentiality and security of patients
health care information.
