Product Description: People need to understand the information systems ramifications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). They are eager to get unbiased and comprehensive information about what HIPAA means for them. This book addresses that need. Content: This book is organized into the following three main chapters: 1. Transactions and Codes, 2. Privacy, and 3. Security. The Transactions and Codes Chapter relates to exchanges between healthcare providers and payers. The Chapter covers transactions, code sets, identifiers, and impact. The Privacy Chapter focuses on the relationship between patients and the healthcare system, and the chapter addresses consent and authorize, access and amend, administration, other regulations, and impact. The Security Chapter explains how to keep information safe and covers: compliance life cycle, real-world security policy; computer security models; and technical security mechanisms. The healthcare providers and payers have agreed that standardization of the transactions between them would be helpful. Standards for transactions and code sets are vital to efficient and effective communication among healthcare organizations. The impact should be higher quality at less cost. Privacy relates to power. When one person has another person's private information, that other person loses some control. This power perspective sheds light on the intense conflict that surrounds privacy discussions. The Privacy Rule gives the patient strong rights over his or her information. The Security Chapter describes how organizations address the proposed Security Rule. Workflow management is vital to healthcare organizations and when done properly gives security as a derivative. Therefore, organizations should see the proposed Security Rule as a challenge to improve their workflow. The reader is assured that the author will watch for any changes in law or regulation. When a significant change occurs, such as a Final Rule is issued (or withdrawn), the author will make available updated information. Audience and Related Work Anyone working in or around healthcare could benefit by reading this book. The targeted audience is people in healthcare organizations that have some information systems responsibility. More particularly, managers in hospitals and information systems consultants have responsibilities that require them to know the content of this book. The book also serves many others, such as nurses or radiologists within the provider community, information systems staff within an insurance company, and salespeople in consulting firms or lawyers. A company might use the books to help persuade staff about the relevance of HIPAA to a company's information policies and tools.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
