Article & Study: HIPAA, Heal Thyself (Johns Hopkins Magazine)

The one-year old HIPAA privacy rule has received varying reviews, particularly recently on the occasion of its first anniversary. Johns Hopkin's Magazine has a great article that provides a thorough review of the impementation of HIPAA at Johns Hopkins, in the format of a magazine feature. Lots of anecdotes and a great overview. A must read.

Johns Hopkins Magazine - HIPAA, Heal Thyself:

"A sweeping set of patient privacy regulations went into effect last year, complicating life considerably for Medicine's researchers, fundraisers, and archivists. Now many are wondering: Are the intended benefits outweighed by the unintended costs?"
