Stedman's Guide to the HIPAA Privacy Rule finally makes clear for medical transcription students and professionals the confusing legal issues surrounding the HIPAA Privacy Rule, and how it relates to and affects their practice. This text provides comprehensive information about the rule itself, how it affects service owners and independent contractors, implementation guidelines, sample template contract language, and sample policies.

Mnemonics and other quick aids help readers remember important information. Case-based vignettes and real-world applications emphasize the practical application of the law on medical transcriptions. End-of-chapter critical thinking questions—with answers in an appendix—encourage readers to ponder and apply information.
