Lots of important detail. A book I will keep for future business and regular life applications. It covers subjects well, but also does a good job of offering information for a class that is an overview and limited by just the 3 credits we had for this class. I gained a lot of education from this text.

Provides essential legal and ethical principle for anyone pursuing a healthcare career. It provides a foundation of all the essentials including the legal system, the patient/physician relationship, professional liability and medical malpractice prevention, public duties of the physician, the medical record, confidentialiy, bioethical issues and HIPAA. Great resource for those seeking a career in HIT/HIM.

I was impressed on how thin this book was, because the subject is so in-depth. It is an easy read for the most part, but sometimes it was boring to read. I really liked how the book used legal cases as examples throughout the textbook. After reading this book I have become a lot more aware of my surroundings in the medical field and I know there are serious consequences for breaching patient confidentiality. The review sections after each chapter are extremely helpful in reinforcing information learned in each chapter. I really liked how you were able to learn a lot from only reading a little!

This textbook was not only informative, but it was not dull which is no easy task for a textbook not to be.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Filled with superfluous case studies that are irrelevant or inappropriate in the context of the chapter they appear. The cross-referencing capability is impossible with this book. There is redundant information 'verbatim' from one chapter to the next. Clearly, the author was getting paid by the page! Don't rely on this book to learn medical law.

Format: Paperback
The confusion over regulations following the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) has been met with few resources providing the basic overview required to determine office policy and practice. Fremgen's second edition accomplishes this, turning government jargon into a concise outline.

I finished reading this book even before my class began. Full of information but doesn't bog you down. Very interesting material.
