The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed. This includes covered entities, anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare, and business associates, anyone with access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment, or operations. Subcontractors, or business associates of business associates, must also be in compliance.
