Rules implementing The Health Insurance and Portability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2003 (HITECH) underwent major changes as a result of amendments brought about by the US Department of Health and Human Services in 2013.

Fund raising is among the primary areas of change these rules covered. Important areas such as the methods and practice that hospitals, their institutionally related foundations, and other healthcare charities may or must exercise when using any patient or client information for fund raising amendments have been modified significantly. The new rules include specific operational requirements, some of which prohibit protocols that were required under the original HIPAA regulations.
