HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, continues to alter the way medical info is stored and transmitted in hopes of delivering privacy to patients as well as an increased standard of care in the future. Some regard it as troublesome or unnecessary but one thing is clear, it is here to stay. Just as clear are the penalties for a HIPAA violation, ranging from a hefty fine for the practice all the way up to criminal penalties in which jail time may not be out of the question.
