Privacy regulations newly promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 will affect not only health care providers and health insurance plans, but also any company that does business with the health care industry and has access to patient health information, as well as employers who sponsor group health plans for their employees. Regulated entities are required to obtain permission from patients or employees before any of their health information is accessed, used or disclosed. Businesses must immediately develop compliance programs to minimize the chances of inappropriate access to health information.
