Description: The HIPAA Privacy, now modified by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, spells out how patients and health plan members’ medical and claims information can be used and disclosed with and without authorization. It addresses what covered entities and business associates are required to do to comply with federal privacy requirements and it spells out individuals’ privacy rights. The question remains do covered entities and business associates really know what is mandated and are workforce members actually trained.
