Question and answer
What kinds of visual aids are used in health care and how do they enhance communication?
Visual aids have been in use since the first cave drawings when stick figures illustrated hunts and herd migrations. They were so effective that scientists can still understand them today. [ This is still relevant in business, school, and personal presentations. Audio and visual aids can be created from a wide variety of sources, and using them aids a listener by providing a visual stimulation,
and illustrating concepts makes them easier to understand and follow, thus improving the communication of thoughts and ideas. ]

Why is HIPAA information?
Weegy: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is an extensive piece of legislation that requires the standardization of electronic patient health, administrative, and financial data. [ Important to researchers, HIPAA created the Privacy Rule—a set of minimum standards for the use and disclosure of “protected health information” (PHI). The Privacy Rule protects individuals by safeguarding the privacy of any identifiable health information, yet many provisions ensure that the rule does not impede research or the mission of public health. Understanding the HIPAA Privacy Rule is important in protecting the dignity of an individual’s health information as well as in reducing unnecessary delays in designing and conducting research. To fully understand the Privacy Rule, it is important to understand some key definitions. PHI is defined as individually identifiable health information that is created or received by a HIPAA-covered or hybrid entity. Health information includes any information, whether oral or recorded in any form, that relates to the past, present, or future physical or mental health or condition of an individual; the provision of health care to an individual; or the past, present, or future payment of health care to an individual. PHI includes names, all geographic references smaller than a state, telephone numbers, Social Security numbers, medical record or health plan numbers, etc., (for a complete list see the chart at the bottom of this page). A covered entity is a health plan, a health care clearinghouse, or a health care provider which transmits health information in paper or electronic form in connection with a transaction for which HHS has adopted a standard. ] (More)
