Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This second edition updates the ethical challenges of managing and protecting health information with new chapters related to end-of-life issues, electronic health information management, vendor interactions, and management.
Purpose: This could serve as a textbook in a college health information management course, but probably is more valuable to health information management professionals and the healthcare delivery team as they confront the ethical demands and conflicts that can occur when health information is produced and used. The author, a college professor with a special interest in healthcare ethics, has recruited a large number of contributors, each of whom addresses a specific area of interest in terms of the ethical challenges of managing health information.
Audience: The people who would benefit from reading this book are students in a health information management college course, health information professionals charged with protecting patient privacy, members of the healthcare team who document the patient care, other healthcare professionals with an interest in healthcare ethics, and, possibly, patients who know the importance of their health information and want to protect their privacy. The author is a recognized expert in the health information management and healthcare ethics community.
Features: The book is divided into five parts. Part I address professional ethics, particularly those of the health information management professional. Part II focuses on the uses of health information for quality review, research, public health, reimbursement, and managed care. Part III explores the dilemmas created by electronic health information systems and the electronic health record. Part IV addresses the special areas of privacy protection including genetic, adoption, mental health, and substance abuse treatment records. Part V, on roles, concludes with a review of ethical issues for managers, entrepreneurs, advocates, and those working with vendors related to health information.
Assessment: The 70-plus case studies and decision making matrices to facilitate evaluating and resolving ethical issues faced in the management of health information and the privacy of patient data are my favorite part of the book. This is a sizeable collection of material, but its organization enables a reader to focus on a special area of interest. Each part or chapter of the book stands on its own and provides thorough information on a particular topic, meaning you don't have to read the book cover to cover to gain valuable information. I recommend the book as an excellent reference for health information managers to explore solutions to the ethical challenges of managing health information.
