bwhaley writes "The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, signed in to law by Bill Clinton in 1996, has shaped the security requirements for organizations that handle individual health information over the past 13 years. The ARRA "Stimulus" bill introduces serious changes and additions to the original legislation. In particular, the ARRA comes with new data breach notification requirements, additional auditing and disclosure rules, and the full wrath of the HIPAA Privacy and Security rules for business associates. Full coverage of the ARRA's effect on HIPAA here."
