August 2010

The August cover story reports on how privacy officers are determining risk of harm under the breach notification provisions of the HITECH Act. The other feature stories explore how to apply a cost-benefit analysis for an EHR adoption, how to tackle the ARRA changes, and an HIE model that leverages local and regional networks and aligns to national objectives.

Members may read all stories online in the AHIMA Body of Knowledge. Select features and practice briefs are also available publicly.
