The handling of personally identifiable medical information is a very delicate subject matter. After all, one wrong step and this information could end up in the hands of people who mean ill. In order to protect patients from the misuse of their personal information, particularly in the digital age, the United States Congress enacted HIPAA back in 1996. This introduced established parameters for the online use of sensitive information meant to enforce HIPAA complacency. Setting up a safe network where you can store patients’ information without putting it at risk from third parties will be key to your operations as a healthcare or insurance provider.
