Books: HIPAA and Human Subject Research: A Question & Answer Reference Guide
Posted 01 May 2008 | By
Regulations promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) affect all aspects of medical care and research by offering individuals greater control over how their personal health information can be used. It has wide implications in the conduct of clinical research. Hence all parties involved with collection, distribution, use and storage of protected health information, as defined by HIPAA, need to be trained in those regulations. I have been training clinical trial professionals on HIPAA for the last few years, utilizing several different resources. In addition, I consult with several human clinical trials sponsors and other vendors regarding privacy issues. So, my goal was to find out how this book fits with the regular HIPAA training I conduct and whether it could become a tool for the consultations I provide.
