Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Nicholas Greco IV, MS, BCETS, CATSM (Columbia College of Missouri)
Description: This book provides an excellent and thorough presentation of the often confusing and difficult task of understanding and implementing HIPAA. It is through this comprehensive and easy-to-read format that the reader comes away with an ample amount of knowledge and confidence to implement HIPAA.
Purpose: The authors' main purpose is to provide guidance on HIPAA requirements and the more commonly discussed topics. Overall, this book is designed for anyone who needs to configure either their organization or someone else's for the HIPAA laws. The book meets the authors' objectives and gives readers a much-needed resource.
Audience: The beauty of this book is that it crosses over all health-related disciplines as well as the administrative and ancillary staff behind the disciplines (e.g. attorneys, consultants, office managers, hospital administrators, etc.). Any profession that is a covered entity under HIPAA will need this book. The authors are well-versed and well-trained in this area.
Features: The book is comprehensive and is broken down into six main areas that include: HIPAA Essentials, HIPAA Privacy Rule, HIPAA Security Rule, Covered Entity Issues, HIPAA Technology Considerations, and Managing Ongoing HIPAA Compliance. The standout highlights include a terrific glossary, chapter quizzes, case studies, sample documents, HIPAA resources, and a helpful index.
Assessment: This is a much-needed resource for those in the healthcare field, and one from which all can gain the knowledge and the clear, unbiased understanding that they so desperately need. Clearly a true resource for individual and group learning that can be referenced time and again. Strongly recommended!
