Established in 1996, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) outlined the requirements for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that would serve to protect and secure health information. The program was divided into two rules, the Standards for Privacy of Individually Identifiable Health Information (Privacy Rule) and Security Standards for the Protection of Electronic Protected Health Information (Security Rule). These created standards that all organizations who handle protected health information must follow.
