Privacy has always been a high priority in the health profession. However, since the implementation of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, organizations within the healthcare industry have been compelled to use extra precaution in handling protected health information. To prevent unauthorized use or disclosure of this information, several security regulations have been set in place. Some of the required regulations include audit controls, unique user identification, transmission security, and emergency access procedure, with addressable implementation specifications including encryption and automatic logoff.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) addresses the security of private patient healthcare data. Failure to abide by HIPAA regulations can lead to higher business costs, civil monetary penalties and negative media exposure.
