HITECH Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Heath (HITECH), was enacted as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It became effective February 17, 2009 in order to promote the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology. The HITECH legislation stimulated the adoption of the EHR. Beginning in 2011 healthcare providers where offered financial incentives for demonstrating “meaningful use” of EHR’s until 2015. Any provider that did not try the EHR system was penalized. HIPAA’s Breach Notification Rule, requires HIPAA’s covered entities and their business associates to provide notification following a breach of unsecured protected health information. A breach is an impermissible use of disclosure under the privacy rule the compromises the security or privacy of the protected health information. A breach must be reported without unreasonable delay in any case later than 60 calendar days.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
