HIPAA and COBRA have been evolving sometimes quietly and sometimes due to major changes. For example, compliance audits and expanded scope have made HIPAA a more prominent concern for a vastly larger number of companies than ever before.

This is in addition to the changes in best practices, shifts in expectations and popular trends.
