HIPAA for the General Practitioner

By Melanie D. Bragg

INCLUDES new changes to the HIPAA law from the Economic Stimulus Act of 2009

When HIPAA became law in 1996, the move already had begun from a paper-based patient data system to an electronic one. This migration poses complex security and privacy issues. Over the next six and a half years, the HIPAA implementation took place with the following goals in mind:

-Improve access to health insurance
-Minimize healthcare billing fraud, waste and abuse
-Increase efficiency and effectiveness of the health care system

HIPAA for the General Practitioner provides specific, strategic, and practical information pertaining to what each state has done in response to the HIPAA preemption provisions. This book demystifies the 692-page HIPAA law, and explains what general practitioners need to know to help their clients.

A companion CD is included, featuring forms to be used as a guide to drafting HIPAA provisions.
