HIPAA Privacy Information

HIPAA and OSU
HIPAA is the Health Insurance and Portability & Accountability Act.  The idea of HIPAA regulations is multi-fold: ensure the portability of insurance coverage from one job to the next, set standards when exchanging data electronically and to safeguard and protect healthcare information for individuals being served.  HIPAA requires healthcare organizations and businesses that deal with individual health information to take steps to simplify and standardize data exchange and to protect the confidentiality and security of all health data managed by the organization.
