Good HIPAA Resource

HIPAA isn't new, but - and maybe because I work in an environment where it's the primary regulatory standard - I regularly have conversations with colleagues and vendors about how we adhere to HIPAA standards and specifically the nuances of how we believe it translates into actual best practices on the ground. Like anything that is both legal and technical, HIPAA is riddled with self-referencing jargon, and defining these terms is useful to any serious conversation about HIPAA compliance. To that end, I stumbled on a really nice encyclopedia of HIPAA terms at U of Miami's med school. Too useful not to share.

As it is know to everyone that every coin has two sides and same applies with many policies along with the HIPAA policy. No doubt that the HIPAA policy has been brought in for protection and safety of individual’s EMRs but if the emergency situation like Katrina arises the same policy finds a difficult thing to deal with but nevertheless HIPAA policy is must and need to maintain the safety of EMRs of each individual. I have recently found a new website which acts as recourse and provides the latest happening of HIPAA along with articles, webinars and much more, I would like to introduce this website for your web visitor to if they want to know about HIPAA http://compliancehome.com/topics/HIPAA
