Health Records and Privacy



 



Welcome to LawShelf’s video-course on health records and privacy. A doctor’s visit can be a stressful experience not only because it involves health issues, but also because it generates records that patients usually want to keep confidential.  

To help assuage patients’ concerns, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, or HIPAA, regulates disclosure of private patient information. Many Americans have heard of the Act, but this course focuses on its nuances and how it operates. This is an introductory-level course on principles of healthcare privacy and it requires no previous knowledge of healthcare or law.
