The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) include provisions that address the security and privacy of a patient’s health information. Our hospital complies with the following procedures to ensure adherence to the HIPAA requirements.
The “Privacy Rule” is part of a set of standards under HIPAA’s “Administrative Simplification” provisions. The final rule requires health care providers (and other covered entitles) to provide patients with a notice of patient’s privacy rights and the privacy practices of the provider. Each patient will be provided with a Notice of Privacy Practices.
