This lesson focuses on the history of HIPAA. Before 1996, there was no legislation regarding how a patient's personal medical information could be shared. HIPAA was introduced to protect individuals as well as society with a set of ethics, rules and best practices. Even though HIPAA was formed in 1996, it wasn't strongly enforced until 2003. However, at the present time there was very strong audits and regulations surrounding HIPAA.
