Private Medical Information
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act — HIPAA — became a law in 1996 and requires that all health care providers and health insurance plans must comply with its terms defining the use of patient information. HIPAA applies only to patients who are registered at CHI Health Care.
HIPAA addresses two major major areas:
- Privacy: Establishes rules regarding how your health information may be used and disclosed.
- Security: Defines specific security measures to protect health information that is sent and/or stored electronically.
