Overview

Understanding the legal and ethical principles governing health information management today has become more important than ever before. To help successfully navigate these critical legal and ethical requirements, Legal and Ethical Aspects of Health Information Management has been revised, updated, and expanded with new and more in-depth content. The book is solidly organized into four main areas: a study of the legal system and legal procedures, a study of ethics, a study of issues related to the control and use of patient-specific health information, and specialty concerns in health information management, such as healthcare fraud and abuse. This third edition features updated Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) content, new content concerning the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and a deeper examination of the impact electronic health records have on the HIM field. Authored by a lawyer who is also a health information management professional, it provides the perfect combination of relevant, need-to-know information and a straightforward approach that makes the material accessible to those without legal training. With such strong features and detailed content, this will prove to be beneficial for anyone seeking a thorough overview of the legal and ethical requirements that safeguard health care information today.

From the Publisher
I would definitely recommend this book to any accredited program. It covers all the objectives required for accreditation by AHIMA and it makes understanding of the material easier for a new student when there are no prerequisites for the course.
