  Agenda | Administration | Sponsors | Past Summit Home | Main Home



The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) puts extensive requirements on every area within healthcare. Indeed, regulations will govern the transmission, maintenance, security and privacy of electronic health information transmitted by health care providers, payors and others. While HIPAA legislation should ultimately lead to administrative simplification and significant cost savings, the implementation of HIPAA is anything but easy. It will require changes in the health information systems and procedures. To be successful, HIPAA must be integrated into the overall strategic initiatives of your organization. To do so, will require organizational time and commitment.
