The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was enacted by the U.S. Congress in 1996. Some HIPAA provisions address the security and privacy of health data. The standards are meant to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the nation's health care system by encouraging the widespread use of electronic data interchange in the U.S. health care system. MedSave USA complies with HIPAA by employing industry-standard 128-bit encryption SSL (secured socket layer). This ensures clients and providers that sensitive data is protected through the most sophisticated systems and technologies available.
