HIPAA is a federal privacy statute that protects health information in certain specific health care related type institutions. It makes record keeping at these institutions more complex and there is a lot of confusion about the law, but generally it is designed to keep patient information confidential in the health care industry. Do you have a specific question or are you looking for a full analysis of the law?
