The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA), Public Law 104-191, required HHS to adopt national standards for electronic health care transactions and code sets, unique health identifiers, and security. Congress also incorporated into HIPAA provisions that mandated the adoption of Federal privacy protections for individually identifiable health information.
