Overview Edit

The Health Privacy Project (HPP) was founded in 1997 at the Center for Democracy and Technology (CDT). The mission of HPP was to foster greater public trust and confidence in the health care system. HPP played an instrumental role in helping to shape the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule and was active in monitoring the Rule's enforcement, as well as in promoting confidentiality policies and practices in the development of health information exchange networks.

The HPP was folded into CDT in March 2008.

In 2014, the HPP left CDT and was independently managed by Christopher Rasmussen, a former Policy Analyst with the HPP while it was at CDT.
