Praise for the New Edition:
The HIPAA regulations are transforming how providers and insurers think about the individually identifiable health information they create and receive every minute of every day. ... There is a potential for serious harm to service levels and even to patient health if misunderstandings as to the dictates of these regulations choke off the exchange of patient-health information. This guide is a good step toward erasing many of those misunderstandings. I commend the authors for their fine efforts at translating a difficult subject into practical terms.
—Mark Lutes, Chairman, Epstein Becker Green, Washington, DC
Praise for the Bestselling First Edition:
The book's main strength is its abundant and varied content. It thoroughly describes the main provisions of HIPAA's security and privacy requirements using actual language from the legislation interspersed with the authors' commentary. This format…helpfully guides readers through the labyrinthine HIPAA requirements.
—Scott Forbes, Microsoft

This is a very comprehensive view of HIPAA privacy and security compliance which provides a pragmatic, step by step methodology for understanding and complying with the regulation. The practical checklists, the quizzes which
can be used in HIPAA awareness programs, and the pointers to valuable resources are all added benefits.
