The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a United States federal statute enacted by the 104th United States Congress on August 21, 1996. It was created primarily to modernize the flow of healthcare information, stipulate how personally identifiable information should be protected from fraud and theft, and address limitations on healthcare insurance coverage. The law has emerged into greater prominence in recent years with many health data breaches caused by cyber-attacks and ransomware attacks on health insurers and providers.
HIPAA Certification in Uganda has two main purposes: to provide continuous health insurance coverage for workers who lose or change their job and, to ultimately reduce the cost of healthcare by standardizing the electronic transmission of administrative and financial transactions. HIPAA also lays down strict privacy guidelines regulating the exchange of medical data.
