Medical Records Privacy Under HIPAA SAMPLE On April 14, 2003, sweeping new federal regulations took effect that are intended to protect the privacy of Americans' health records. These new regulations represent the most dramatic development in health care law compliance in 30 years! Issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services pursuant to The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the regulations directly impact every American business that maintains health records, including hospitals, nursing homes, insurance companies, HMOs, medical and dental practices, and "health care clearinghouses" (i.e., companies hired to maintain health record databases). Also directly affected are thousands of health law attorneys who represent these businesses. The only book of its kind on the market, Medical Records Privacy is the one map you'll need to lead you through this confusing new maze of regulations. This treatise provides in-depth coverage of how these new regulations impact the way in which businesses maintain and disclose their health care records.
