Patient rights are protected by the privacy and security rules of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). These rules hold the healthcare industry accountable during the collection, viewing, and dissemination of patient information. In the past, security of paper documentation was as easy as locking the records office. Now, with the push to implement Electronic Health Record (EHR) software, securing a patient’s digital record is much more difficult.
