Slide notes:There are many summaries available on the HIPAA rules, several of which are listed on this slide. The paper by ID Experts presents a relatively concise overview of the HIPAA omnibus law. BridgeFront focuses on some of the legal implications, and the Leyva [lay-vat] summary is focused more on the clinical side of the original law. The Health IT government website has many publicly available resources, such as HIPAA and Health IT, which contain information regarding the Privacy Rule and ways it facilitates electronic data exchange. This site also has a Security Information Series, which has resources designed for HIPAA-covered entities, including guidelines for implementation. The Health Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) has the Privacy and Security Toolkit, which contains an analysis of the HIPAA law as well as tools and resources for understanding and implementing various elements of the law. This toolkit, like many other industry resources, provides HIPAA information on how the rule applies to specific areas, such as mobile devices, health information exchange organizations, public health, and cloud computing. Many industry resources focus on a specific health care professional, such as physicians, nurses, business associates, and human resources, for example. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) provides information on the HIPAA Privacy Rule specifically for the research community. Many organizations, such as the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), offer online HIPAA privacy and security courses with some offering certification. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) offers publicly available materials, called Helping Entities Implement Privacy and Security Protections, to support providers with HIPAA employee training. In addition, HHS offers HIPAA for Individuals, which provides information and resources for U.S. citizens to assist them in understanding their rights under HIPAA. 5
