This text provides a comprehensive understanding of the legal principles governing health information management today. Information is organized into three main areas: a study of the legal system and legal procedures; confidentiality issues related to the use of patient-specific health information; and specialty concerns in health information management, such as healthcare fraud and abuse. This second edition of Legal Aspects of Health Information Management features updated Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) content and a deeper examination of the impact e-mail, digital imaging, telemedicine and the Internet are having on the HIM field. Written by a lawyer who is also a health information management professional in a manner accessible by those without legal training.
