What is HIPAA ?
The United States Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) on August 21, 1996, as Public Law104-191. The main purpose of this law is to allow for continuity of healthcare coverage. The law outlines limitations on preexisting condition exclusions and prevents discrimination against individuals based on their health status. The law also has a section on administrative simplification that has new requirements for the electronic transmission of health information. The section on administrative simplification may be of particular interest to medical transcriptionists who receive, send, and/or store patient health information files.

We are committed to ensuring that all necessary policies, procedures and safeguards are in place at all times to comply with HIPAA Privacy Rule requirements in the handling of protected health information in all areas of the company and with any and all business associates or sub-contractors that are permitted access to PHI.
What is Data Protection Act 1998 ?
The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) is a United Kingdom Act of Parliament, which defines UK law on the processing of data on identifiable living people. It is the main piece of legislation that governs the protection of personal data in the UK. Although the Act itself does not mention privacy, it was enacted to bring UK law into line with the EU data protection directive of 1995 which required Member States to protect people’s fundamental rights and freedoms and in particular their right to privacy with respect to the processing of personal data.
