Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act or known as HIPAA is a privacy rule that provides federal protection for personal health information held by the hospitals and gives patients the rights with their health information. This statute is to help protect patients from having their private medical records from being put into the wrong hands. (CMS 2011) It also states that medical personal are to the best of their ability help treat patients without violating their rights. The disclosure of personal health information that is needed for patient care can only be disclosed when needed for patient care and other important purposes. “The Security Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities to use to assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.” (HHS, pg 1, par 2)

    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.
