The benchmark for protecting sensitive patient data is set by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
To achieve HIPAA Compliance, organizations that deal with protected health information (PHI) must put in place and adhere to physical, network, and process security measures.
HIPAA compliance is required of all covered entities (those who provide healthcare treatment, payment, and operations) and business associates (those who have access to patient information and assist with those activities).
Subcontractors and any other associated business partners must likewise comply, as most other companies.
