HIPAA refers to laws that apply to covered entities and business associates regarding the privacy, security, and accessibility of electronic protected health information (ePHI). Covered entities and business associates use this information to provide services to the public such as medical care, and the filing and billing of medical claims. Covered entities include doctor’s offices, hospitals, healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearing houses.
