    Everyone plays a role in securing electronic health information — it’s truly a shared responsibility. Health care providers must comply with the law that protects a person’s right to privacy. Your practice is responsible for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personal health information in your electronic health record (EHR) system.

    Adherence to privacy and security standards fosters patient trust. It assures patients that their electronic health information — while under your control — will remain confidential, accurate, and secure. This creates an environment where patients are more willing to share their health information, which gives providers a more complete picture of patients’ overall health. Together, providers and their patients can make more‐informed decisions.

    HIPAA is U.S. Public Law 104‐191 — the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. Congress created the Act to improve healthcare enabled by the nation's health plans and providers. HIPAA mandates standards‐based implementations of security controls by all health care organizations that create, store or transmit electronic protected health information (PHI).

    The HIPAA Security Rule governs protection of PHI. Organizations must certify their security programs via self‐certification or by a private accreditation entity.

    Non‐compliance can trigger various civil penalties, including fines and/or imprisonment. (hyperlink to recent and relevant cases)
