- The numerous aspects of the Administrative Simplification Act-Standard Transactions and Code Sets.
- Employer, provider, and health plan identifiers — including definitions of key terms.

The Guide includes numerous practice tools such as:
- Sample privacy right policies
- HIPAA business associate agreements
