Paperback (Print)
Not Available on BN.com
 

Overview

This unique resource is the first of its kind-a concise, yet detailed primer for healthcare marketing professionals who are tired of scaling back their marketing and promotional efforts for fear of violating HIPAA's patient privacy rules. In practical, easy-to-understand language, this guide offers a breakdown of what HIPAA permits and the conditions it imposes for using patient information in marketing initiatives. Through real-life scenarios, you'll learn how easy it is to create effective marketing tools and relationships that won't generate costly, repuration-damaging, and time-consuming privacy complaints.

A Marketer's Guide to HIPAA gives you the knowledge you need to use patient information without fear of regulatory noncompliance and provides alternative marketing methods that steer clear of HIPAA, yet can lead to effective results. This book also serves as a HIPAA privacy and security resource manual, with details on key points in those regulations.
