UPenn and HIPAA Security

The University of Pennsylvania recently announced that it's undertaking "an initiative to ensure that all Schools and Centers that handle health information will be in compliance with the Security Rule of the United States’ Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) by April 21, 2005.
