Overview


Main description

HIPAA for Allied Health Careers covers the concepts and knowledge allied health workers need to correctly handle patients’ protected health information (PHI) and to comply with all HIPAA regulations, including: • Administrative Simplification • Privacy Rule • Security Rule • Transactions and Code Sets • Compliance to Avoid Fraud and Abuse. Major emphasis is placed on communication skills--written and oral—-because they underpin HIPAA compliance in most careers. Such skills include handling requests for release of information (ROI) from patients, payers, and other clinicians; effective interviewing of patients to gather information, complete authorization forms, and explain procedures; and documenting data using tools such as electronic medical records. HIPAA for Allied Health Careers provides students with the must-know information on HIPAA compliance. Titles I (COBRA) and II (HIPAA) are covered. The HIPAA privacy, security, and e-transactions are taught in depth. The concluding chapter presents the recently-published final HIPAA enforcement rule, and also provides an overview of compliance guidelines for the various allied health career settings, such as hospital-, physician practice, and billing-service based careers. Throughout the chapters, students think through case scenarios that cover the types of situations in which allied health personnel will need to make the correct choices for protecting patient privacy under HIPAA.
