The article discusses the updated provisions of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) in the U.S. It discusses areas that slow down adherence with HIPAA rules such as lack of risk analysis and training, failure to conduct audit procedures, and the absence of recovery planning and emergency measures. Tips for compliance with HITECH include knowing your business associates and hiring a legal specialist to manage the contracts.
