    What is HIPAA?
    HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act signed into law in 1996. Its primary purpose is to provide continuous insurance coverage for workers who change jobs. An Administrative Simplification section in the law requires adoption of standards for security, privacy and electronic healthcare transactions.
