Share Article

Health care providers and facilities face complex challenges in dealing with compliance issues presented by the HITECH Act's enhancement of HIPAA's Privacy and Security Rules.

The Digital Business Law Group (DBLG) co-authored the HIPAA Survival Guide with Deborah Leyva, RN, BSN, a health care and technology thought leader. The guide provides a concise overview of HIPAA's Privacy and Security Rules with discussion of the implications resulting from the HITECH Act's enhanced enforcement of HIPAA. DBLG also distributes a FREE HITECH/HIPAA Compliance Newsletter monthly, which keeps readers informed about this quickly evolving compliance landscape.

The HIPAA Survival Guide Release 2.0 now features a "clickable" full text version of the HITECH Act and HIPAA regulations as well as expanded commentary and cross references. In addition, the entire information architecture of the guide has been extended to facilitate the incorporation of context specific "notes" and the full text of other relevant documents. In short, the guide is poised to continue delivering quality content to its growing community.

Carlos Leyva, Managing Shareholder of DBLG, says: "DBLG added a free compliance newsletter to complement the HIPAA Survival Guide in order to provide a distribution platform for substantive analysis of mission critical HITECH compliance issues. Archived versions of the newsletter are available on DBLG's website. We have also decided to add a HITECH Risk Management Webinar Series in order to provide an interactive forum for readers to ask questions and directly participate in the development of HITECH/HIPAA best practices and frameworks. Managing risk in an environment where breach notification is now law requires a well grounded understanding of the relevant compliance issues and risk mitigation initiatives designed to preserve a covered entity's reputation."
