ATLANTA, Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As the old expression goes, "a picture is worth a thousand words." This month HIPAA.com launches its sister site, HIPAA TV, to give its visitors an additional perspective on what to do and how to go about it. HIPAA TV expands the HIPAA.com knowledge-base with video clips of public announcements, speeches, demonstrations, case studies, and satire as they relate to HIPAA, the HITECH Act, and other legislative and regulatory healthcare initiatives to aid health systems and providers in benefiting from the new Health Information Technology stimulus dollars.
HIPAA TV syndicates these videos at a single site as a complement to the documentation available at HIPAA.com, helping visitors to save time searching for the pertinent information that they need. "Both sites are great sources of information for privacy and HIT," says Joseph E. Scherger, MD, MPH, Vice President of Primary Care at the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, CA.

HIPAA.com is the go-to resource site for information and services related to privacy laws and policies. Since its launch in January 2009, HIPAA.com has provided the healthcare community with a single site where visitors find immediate access to information on: HIPAA regulations on electronic transactions, privacy, and security; HITECH Act security rules for business associates, "breach notification" privacy requirements for disclosure of unsecured protected health information to unauthorized persons, and financial incentives for healthcare providers to adopt and meaningfully use electronic health records, all of which were enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in February 2009; and practical guidance on how to comply with HIPAA and HITECH Act rules, written not as legal advice, but as a roadmap of what to do and how to go about it.
