As part of a general effort to attain additional health care reform, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was introduced by Congress in 1996. The law consists of several components, including the Privacy Rule.
The HIPAA "Privacy Rule" requires all healthcare providers to institute a complete strategy for maintaining the privacy of their patients and their confidential health information.
