What is HIPAA Compliance?

HIPAA laws are a series of federal regulatory standards outlining the lawful use and disclosure of protected health information in the United States. HIPAA compliance is regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and enforced by the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).
