Question and answer
Q: How does HIPAA play a role in EHR systems in the medical arena?
A: HIPAA sets a national standard for accessing and handling medical information. Before HIPAA, your right to privacy of health information varied depending on what state you live in. [ Now, health care providers, health plans and other health care services that operate in all states have to abide by the minimum standards set by HIPAA. Your state is free to adopt laws that give you more privacy,
but it cannot take away the basic rights given by HIPAA. It is likely that your state has existing laws that in some way govern the privacy of medical records. Some states may pass new laws to incorporate or strengthen HIPAA. ]
