HIPPA is the Health Insurance Portability Act. President Clinton signed this federal mandate into law during 1996. The main goals of HIPAA are:
- Guarantee health insurance coverage of workers during job transitions
- Protect privacy of patient records
- Promote national, uniform security standards for the secure electronic transmission of health information.
Griffeth Vision Group strives to maintain HIPPA compliancy. We value the importance of protecting our patient’s private health care information, as well as securing patient records both on paper and electronic systems.
Our Notice of Privacy Practices is a statement designed to protect our patients private information.
