Navigating HIPAA in the Electronic Age:What DCs Must Know

Chiro.Org Blog: It has been nearly 20 years since the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was passed and more than five years since its privacy protections for health care consumers were significantly strengthened by the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, as more healthcare transactions became electronic.

Technical education in Chiropractic curricula invariably has to assume that you already know how to “make the rice”. […]

Realistically, this scenario is a fantasy to the many DC’s who aren’t destined to start and operate their own practice. How do you know if you have what it takes to start a new practice—or if you’d be happier as an associate? Your personal answers to the following questions will tell you. […]
