REU Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
HIPAA, or the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is designed to ensure the privacy of patient medical records. It states exactly what information is covered and who is eligible to view this information. Information entered by physicians and nurses into a medical chart is covered by HIPAA, as are conversations between a patient and a physician and any information about a patient that is on an office computer system.
