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.
