    Well, I hope she was wearing a tutu or a bow, because a HIPPA - is the girl. I just read a very informative article that contained a history and timeline of the whole HIPAA thing.

    The Portability part also refers to the fact that if you changed jobs, your new employer got a notice that you had had health insurance, and your coverage did not lapse or have a wait time even if the new employer only offers coverage by a different carrier.

    The Accountability part has to do with who will be accountable for maintaining patient privacy regarding private health information (PHI).
