For this Discussion Board, please complete the following:

For this week’s Discussion Board, review the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Web site.

This Web site provides a thorough definition of HIPAA, as well as past violation cases and penalties for nor adhering to the law. Privacy is very important to all of us, and no one wants their health information on display to the public. This week’s discussion will focus on your experience with HIPAA. Without disclosing any personal health info (or that of a friend or family member), answer the following questions:

  • Provide an example of when you did not think HIPAA was adhered to as well as it could have been. Did you speak up and let those involved know?
  • Is there anything that you think should be changed regarding the HIPAA law? If so, why?
