Manage and Protect PHI for HIPAA Compliance

See how BigID helps health organizations — and any company subject to HIPAA regulations — discover, map, tag, catalog, and take action on all their protected health information.

HIPAA Overview: Scope and Challenges

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulates health care providers, health plans and insurers, health care clearinghouses, and businesses associated with health organizations.

The federal regulation defines and monitors “protected health information,” or PHI, plus electronic protected health information, or ePHI. PHI is any medical information — past, current, or future — that can identify an individual; or that is created, used, or disclosed in the process of providing health care services.

HIPAA regulations frequently change to adapt to new technologies and conditions.
