Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: LouAnn Schraffenberger, MBA, RHIA, CCS, CCS-P(Advocate Health Care)
Description: This is a text and reference book concerning the legal principles of health information management.
Purpose: The author saw a need, particularly in the health information education arena, for a guide to the recognition of legal problems particular to health information management. The book was written to fill that need. Primarily, it is expected to serve as a textbook in health information management and health services administration.
Audience: The audience may primarily be students in health information administration or technology programs, with other health services programs a likely second audience. The author is an attorney with undergraduate education in health information management, a unique set of skills that provides an excellent background for the author of a book like this.
Features: The book is organized into three main areas: (1) the study of law in general including the legal system, legal principles and principles of liability; (2) control and use of patient-specific health information, including confidentiality and privacy of health information; and (3) specialized areas of concern in health information such as drug abuse, mental health, and HIV-related illness treatment records.
Assessment: Instructors who teach "legal aspects of health information" or "health law" should consider this book as a text for their course. It is well written, thorough, yet easy to read. Learning objectives, key concepts, case studies and endnotes all support effective teaching. It has several excellent appendices for specialized information.

Meet the Author

Dana C. McWay, JD, RHIA is both a lawyer and a health information management professional. With training and experience in both disciplines, experience as a member of the Institutional Review Board at Washington University Medical School from 1991 to present, and experience in converting a paper-based record management system to an electronic record management system, she brings a wide-ranging perspective to this textbook.
Ms. McWay serves as the Clerk of Court for the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, an executive position responsible for all operational, administrative, financial, and technological matters of the court. In this capacity, she organized the court's conversion to an electronic case filing system, resulting in widespread acceptance by end users. This success led to her appointment as member and later chair of the Case Management/Electronic Case Filing (CM/ECF) Working Group, an entity within the federal judiciary responsible for providing guidance and assistance in all phases of the development of bankruptcy CM/ECF software releases. She serves on numerous national committees and working groups within the judiciary, including those involved in identifying the impact of new legislation upon judicial operations and those involved in advising on the education and training needs of court staff. Prior to this position, she worked as the Chief Deputy Clerk of Court for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit, responsible for daily operations of the court.
