Demystify the HIPAA regulations and learn what they mean to the future of health care.

There's one thing almost everyone can agree on when it comes to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA): the overwhelming complexity of the regulations.

To help physicians and other health care professionals navigate the HIPAA labyrinth, the American Medical Association offers this straightforward guide that introduces the details of the legislation and interprets the impacts and benefits of HIPAA components.

Most important, the book offers guidance in assessing readiness for HIPAA compliance, determining risk of noncompliance, and maximizing the benefits of compliance. It also provides insight into how traditional and emerging health care information technologies can provide solutions to meet HIPAA strategic e-commerce needs, examines future trends in automating records, and helps you set standards to ensure the portability and accessibility of medical records.

Included in the easy-to-use appendices are:

-Important HIPAA assessment templates -Model business agreements -Key Web sites for reference material -Definitions of terms -A sample of privacy officer job description, and -Other valuable tools

With a balanced, positive view of the effects of the legislation, HIPAA: A Short- and Long-Term Perspective for Health Care helps you understand the sweeping role of HIPAA in the future of health care processes - and sets you soundly on the path to compliance.
