CLEAR INFORMATION on the full range of today’s e-health business and transactional law issues
E-health has rapidly emerged as one of the most dynamic and fastest-growing areas of the health care industry. As the industry becomes more dependent on information technology, health law practitioners are increasingly confronting unfamiliar legal issues. E-Health, Privacy, and Security Law, with CD-ROM, Second Edition offers clear guidance on the full range of today’s e-health business and transactional law issues with a new focus on the liabilities and ethical issues associated with the increased use of health information technology, social media, and digitized patient records and discusses such important topics and trends as: personal health records and social media; FDA regulation of e-health technology; special issues regarding electronic health information and litigation; the latest regulations on privacy and security issues under the HITECH Act; and new enforcement techniques and practices.
The Second Edition contains a comprehensive discussion of new HIPAA enforcement actions, including the first State Attorney General enforcement action under the HITECH Act and the first impositions of civil money penalties and jail time for criminal actions under HIPAA.
This treatise also is useful for e-health professionals, who will value its indispensable analysis and advice to help them avoid penalties and jail time; maximize the use of technology to increase efficiency, cut costs, and improve marketing; and complete e-health strategic transactions successfully.
