Flatworld Philippines is Fully HIPAA Compliant
Flatworld Philippines is fully compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 or HIPAA as it is also known as. The HIPAA is a healthcare reform law that was brought into effect by the Congress in the United States of America (USA), in 1996. It governs laws related to major healthcare services such as medical billing in the healthcare domain, administration and portability of health insurance, privacy of healthcare data, and more.
The HIPAA regulates the operations of all healthcare companies, providers of healthcare services, hospitals, healthcare centers, which have business operations in the USA. These companies have to adhere to and comply with the policies, standards and rules announced by the HIPAA and ensure complete privacy and confidentiality of all sensitive patient data in any format – physical or electronic. Violating the HIPAA guidelines may result in severe consequences in the form of penalties and fines. In some cases, the U.S. Department of Justice may have to intervene as well.
