The Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a healthcare industry standard followed by organizations handling Protected Health Information (PHI). This includes medical facilities, health insurance companies, laboratories, healthcare software, and others who possess patient information. Due to the sensitive nature of PHI, data security is a major part of HIPAA compliance. According to HIPAA's cybersecurity guidelines, the general requirements include ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and accessibility of all electronic PHI, identifying and protecting against likely threats, protecting against data disclosure, and ensuring staff member compliance through policies and awareness training.
