    Deciphering the HIPAA Security Rule and creating your comprehensive — and required —compliance program can be one big pain in the neck. It no longer has to be. Using practical, real-world, and relevant case studies, HIPAA Security: Compliance and Case Studies explains how to develop your plan to avoid penalties and other costly mistakes.


    If you store and transfer protected health information electronically, you need to have safeguards in place throughout your practice’s procedures, from thumb drives to firewalls, to prevent a leak.


    HIPAA Security: Compliance and Case Studies shows you how to apply the HIPAA Security Rule to common compliance risks and how to protect yourself in a practical way.
