HIPAA and HITECH
In order to maintain the privacy and security of patients’ medical information, the then president Bill Clinton in 1996 introduced the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Business associates had to maintain the integrity of Protected Health Information (PHI), but there was no legal requirement.
Therefore in 2009, The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act was passed. The legal requirements to comply with HIPAA and HITECH as covered entities are same, but if they do any unauthorized disclosure of PHI, they need to inform it to the covered entities.
