The federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), includes laws and regulations governing health insurance coverage protection and health information security for Americans and their families. The intent of HIPAA is to assure the portability of health insurance, decrease health care fraud and abuse, improve efficiency and effectiveness of healthcare, enforce standards, and guarantee security and privacy of patient identifiable information.

The URMC HIPAA web site will provide information on internal privacy and security policies as well as educational modules.
