Because of the inexplicit and technology-neutral way in which HIPAA is written, the potential exists for Privacy and Security Officers to interpret the Act incorrectly. Periodically, the Department of Health & Human Services releases HIPAA compliance guidelines, which you will be able to review in the news sections dedicated to HIPAA Updates and Healthcare Compliance News.
Where no HIPAA compliance guidelines have been released for your specific circumstances, a search facility exists at the top of each page to help you navigate HIPAAGuide.net. The search facility will enable you to quickly find information published on the site, including news relevant to your industry sector. You are also invited to follow HIPAAGuide on Twitter.
