The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has a complete publication of standards and updates to the HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act of 1996). The Office for Civil Rights enforces the HIPAA Privacy Rule, which is designed to protect the individually identifiable health information. There are several areas of HIPAA compliance and regulations that include the national standards for security of protected health information and the requirements of notification for circumstances that meet the HIPAA Breach Notification Rule.
