HEALTHCARE 2 Informatics in Professional Nursing Patient healthcare information refers to medical histories, insurance information, demographic information, test and laboratory results, mental health conditions and other information which are collected by professional healthcare to recognize a person and provide them with appropriate care. According to Health Insurance Portability and Accountability (HIPPA) of 1996 and other changes made to the 2009's Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), protected units include insurers, healthcare providers and their business partners. These entities are limited in that they can only collect specific information from people, share the information with other firms or use it in marketing. Furthermore, the Acts requires that any organization should provide security to patients' knowledge and provide the data in a protected form such as in the electronic PHI form.

    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.
