The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)  also seeks to encourage the adoption of electronic medical records in order to improve the efficiency and quality of the healthcare system by improving the exchange of information. The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) expanded HIPAA rules in 2009. The legislations establish a set of federal standards created to ensure the security and privacy of protected health information.
