The Health Insurance and Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) rules are more stringent than ever before. Every person who works with patients or comes in contact with a patient?s protected health information - whether direct caregivers, billing clerks, office staff, or CEO - will be held to a higher standard of accountability for keeping confidential information private. With advances in electronic medical record documentation and storage, ensuring privacy and security of individual?s health information is even more challenging.
