Understanding the legal principles governing health information management today has become more important than ever before. To help successfully navigate these critical, current legal requirements, LEGAL ASPECTS OF HEALTH INFORMATION MANAGEMENT has been revised, updated, and expanded with new and more in-depth content. The book is solidly organized into three main areas: a study of the legal system and legal procedures, confidentiality issues related to the use of patient-specific health information, and specialty concerns in health information management, such as healthcare fraud and abuse. This third edition features updated Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) content and a deeper examination of the impact email, digital imaging, telemedicine and the Internet are having on the HIM field. Authored by a lawyer who is also a health information management professional, it provides the perfect combination of relevant, need-to-know information and a straightforward approach that makes the material accessible to those without legal training. With such strong features and detailed content, this will prove to be beneficial for anyone seeking a thorough overview of the legal requirements that safeguard health care information today.
