The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has undergone multiple changes since it was enacted in 1996. While most healthcare professionals and practice administrators are aware of the various aspects of HIPAA, many business associates (BA) fail to understand the importance of proper policies and procedures for complying with HIPAA.
