HCA 322 WK 3 Annotated Bibliography

This article covers a lot of good information. It covers information about the Department of Health and Human Services addressing concerns with the new privacy standardsthat set a national minimum of basic protections, while balancing individual needs with those of society. It also talks about the HIPPA privacy rule along with the certain covered entities.  As we are certainly aware this has a huge impact of public health. The DHHS recognizes the importance of sharing PHI (Personal Health Information) to accomplish essential public health objectives and to meet certain other societal needs (e.g., administration of justice and law enforcement). Therefore, the Privacy Rule expressly permits PHI to be shared for specified public health purposes.
