A valuable, must-read resource for frontline patient interaction.
Ensure your practice is compliant with the updated HIPAA privacy and security regulations that accompany ARRA and the Health Information Technology for Economic Clinical Health Act (HITECH) that started to go into effect February 2010. Stepped up enforcement includes new breach notification laws with monetary penalties if not enforced, stricter accountability for business associates, and use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI).
HIPAA Plain & Simple eases your administrative burden by explaining the increased importance the federal government is placing on PHI so that you can conduct your own risk assessment and ensure your physician office staff is appropriately trained.
Recommended by the AMA, this straightforward guide simplifies the complex HIPAA regulations for those in the medical office who have direct patient contact or are responsible for safeguarding patient information.
