In 1996, the United States Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191. HIPAA was designed to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the healthcare system by facilitating electronic interchange of healthcare information, including financial and administrative transactions transmitted electronically between healthcare organizations. Congress directed the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop standards for transactions, unique health identifiers, transaction code sets, electronic signature, privacy, and security.

The Health Insurance Reform: Security Standards Final Rule, commonly known as the HIPAA Security Rule, was issued by HHS in 2003. The HIPAA Security Rule was designed to assure patients, insured individuals, providers, and health plans that the security (i.e., integrity, confidentiality, and availability) of electronic protected health information (e-PHI) is safeguarded through its collection, maintenance, use, and transmission. The purpose of this rule was to adopt national security standards for the healthcare industry for safeguards to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of PHI.
