What is HIPAA Privacy and Compliance?

The HIPAA Privacy in Florida is covered by the all embracing Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, HIPAA, which sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Entities dealing with protected health information (PHI) must put in place physical, network, and process security measures; non-compliance results in heavy fines. Rules on HIPAA Privacy in Florida apply to individuals/organizations; physicians, nursing homes, health insurance companies, Medicare. HIPAA extended medical privacy standards to include health care businesses not directly subject to HIPAA.
