Purpose of HIPAA / HITECH

While maintaining compliance might seem overwhelming, these acts work to protect both patients and healthcare providers. From protecting the integrity of data to ensuring data is only used for valid purposes, these standards ensure that patients can entrust not just their healthcare, but their personal medical data to their healthcare provider.
