Friday at Five – 7/30/10

Join us every Friday at Five for our weekly top 5 favorites in the world of HIT and HITECH. This week we are highlighting five HIPAA resources we think will help you keep up with the ever changing HIPAA compliance.

  1. Information Law Group – This informative site recently published a two-part FAQ on the proposed modifications to HIPAA and is, overall, a great resource.
  2. Association of Corporate Counsel /Lexology – This is a site for business lawyers but they do a great job of putting complex legal issues into laymen’s terms in their article posts. You must register to access their article archives but it is free.
  3. HIPAA Compliance Journal – A really good “just the facts ma’am” blog, HIPAA Compliance Journal covers HIPAA from just about every angle.
  4. Google e-mail alert–  Interested in getting breaking news on HIPAA breaches, violations and penalties? We suggest setting up a Google e-mail alert. Create an e-mail alert with HIPAA as one of your search terms. You’ll be e-mailed results from news and the blogosphere as often as you’d like.
  5. Data Mountain–  Our own contributing expert, Bob chaput, puts out a darned-fine monthly newsletter dedicated to HIPAA and data security.
