Resources for building a HIPAA knowledge base

Regarding HIPAA, can you recommend a list of books and/or Web sites that have assisted you in acquiring your knowledge...


There are many good HIPAA resources on the Internet; some of them are just difficult to find. Check out the following Web sites for starters:

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Administration simplification
Strategic National Implementation Process
Principle Logic's HIPAA resources
American Health Information Management Association
Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society

A good mailing list to subscribe to is called HIPAA Weekly Advisor. You can sign up at hcPro.

Regarding books, the more recent, the better since the HIPAA rules have changed recently and will continue to change. You may want to check out the following books for more in-depth information:

  • 2002 HIPAA Desk Reference, by Medicode
  • Healthcare Information Systems, Second Edition, by Auerbach Publications (coming Fall 2002)
  • HIPAA Security: HIMSS Compendium
