  HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, is revolutionizing healthcare information management. Any organization that electronically stores or transmits patient information must take enterprise-wide steps to adhere to HIPAA's sweeping privacy, security and transactions standards. Essentially, HIPAA requires healthcare entities to "re-architect" how they capture, store, and transmit health data and to ensure that they protect personal health information and the privacy rights of patients.
