To help health care providers comply with privacy and security requirements, and help consumers better understand their rights, new resources on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) are available online. The Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has developed fact sheets, continuing education modules, and videos, all of which are now linked from APTA's HIPAA webpage at www.apta.org/HIPAA under Related Resources.
New for providers are 3 video educational modules (hosted on Medscape.org, free login required) and a YouTube video that explains how to protect patient information in compliance with HIPAA security rules. For consumers, 7 new multilingual consumer fact sheets complement 7 videos released earlier this year on OCR/s YouTube channel.
