HIPAA is Federal legislation that was made law by Congress in 1996. With all the advancements in electronic technology, Congress recognized the need for Federal privacy protections of individually identifiable health information and therefore has mandated privacy protections. The HIPAA Privacy Rule, effective April 14, 2003, is aimed at safeguarding the privacy of our residents through increased accountability in the areas of privacy and security. The Privacy Rule establishes for the first time, a foundation for Federal protections for the privacy of Protected Health Information (PHI). The HIPAA Security Rule, effective April 20, 2005, becomes more specific and calls for protection of PHI in electronic formats.
Compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule is required for Friendship Village of Dublin because we sometimes transmit resident health information electronically related to health care claims, payment, or coordination of benefits. We are called a Covered Entity. Friendship Village of Dublin already practices confidentiality and respect for resident privacy. The Privacy and Security Rule will provide an even greater opportunity for us to monitor the safe keeping of our resident’s Protected Health Information (PHI).
