HIPAA at 10: Would you believe that HIPAA will turn 10 years old this month? The original statute (passed 98-0 in the Senate and 421-2 in the House) was signed into law by President Clinton on August 21, 1996. There's a great story with some historical perspective in last week's Modern Healthcare (yes, the "dead tree" version hit my mailbox on the firm distribution list yesterday). Kinda makes me wax nostalgic.

Just kidding.
