HIPAA Handbook Update: Long-Term Care
Wiggin & Dana has prepared a 2003 update to the original HIPAA Handbook: Implementing the Federal Privacy Rule in a Long-Term Care Setting, published by the American Association of Home and Services for the Aging in 2001. The update discusses specific issues affecting long-term care providers under the Privacy Rule on such topics as continuum of care, admissions, communications with family, fundraising, marketing, clergy, medical staff, and more. It also contains a summary of the Privacy Rule, model forms, frequently asked questions and answers and other resources. The original Handbook and the Update are both available from the AAHSA.
