HIPAA and the Printing Industry

While sensitive data can be difficult to work with, we have the expertise, the equipment, and the technology to reduce the risk of a HIPAA violation.
So, what is HIPAA and why is it important? HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. It was a large-scale modernization of the health insurance industry in the US. Among its many statutes were the privacy Rule and Security Rule, which specifically targeted the mishandling and misuse of information and medical records for countless Americans who would not be left vulnerable to theft and fraud. The act helps prevent occurrences of information misuse and encourages the increase of privacy and security throughout the industry. HIPAA is a rule that when working with the personal information of others for the business you need to protect it and let them know how it is being used. Also, anyone else who uses the information stands by HIPAA. If you are a doctor, dentist, hospital, or any other company that deals with personal health information, HIPAA is a must-have protocol to have in place.
