What is PHI?

PHI or Protected Health Information, also known as personal health information essentially refers to the demographic data, medical history information, test & laboratory results, insurance information, mental health conditions as well as other information that healthcare firms/practitioners gather to identify individual patient and determine the best care and treatment plan for treating them. As per the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) 1996 healthcare providers, business associates and insurers are limited to the type of protected health information that they can gather from individual patients and further share it with other companies or even use it for marketing purpose. Healthcare organizations are also required to provide PHI to individual patients as and when they request, preferably in the electronic format.
