Most people have heard of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), so it’s not surprising that companies dealing with digital health information will have to be HIPAA compliant. To do so, any protected health information (PHI) must be kept confidential, secure, and available when being stored or transmitted. HIPAA also requires healthcare providers to implement safeguards protecting PHI against cyber threats, security breaches, and other improper use of health data.
