									?HIPAA Privacy Regulations
The Department of Health and Human Services under the Health Insurance Portability
and Accountability Act issued Privacy Regulations with the purpose of protecting the
privacy of American patients' health information in numerous ways and creating
additional rights for patients regarding their health information.
The chief intend of these regulations is to give full control to consumers over their
health information; create "boundaries" around how medical records can be used and
disclosed; guarantee the security of personal health information; and establish
accountability for the use and release of medical records. A proper balance between
public responsibilities with privacy protections is also maintained by these
regulations.
It's a duty of any healthcare provider to safeguard patient information. According to
the existing law, patients possess the right to sue health care providers who invade
their privacy or publish private information about them. New privacy standards will
not add to privacy protection; instead, they will add new health care costs and
bureaucracy.
