Healthcare organizations and related businesses,including those who collect their debts have always been expected to treat the patient information confidentiality. This became more important than ever in 1996 when congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The act calls for all health plans, clearinghouses, and healthcare providers to protect the privacy of patient information,and to conduct a risk assessment and develop measures to prevent the unwanted release of confidential information. These procedures need to be documented these measures, kept current, and employees must be properly trained in their use.
