Question and answer
Q: How does HIPAA relate to medical ethics and etiquette?
A: Medical ethics is a system of principles which guide moral or acceptable conduct in medical care. The core principles of modern medical ethics are often listed as autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, and justice. [ Medical etiquette, by contrast, is simply the implicit code that governs socially acceptable behaviour for medical practitioners. In short, medical ethics guides behaviour by
principles, whereas medical etiquette guides behaviour by convention. In practice, there is a large crossover between the two. ]

User: What are some possible ramifications of a health care industry without HIPAA regulations?





Weegy: With Hippa, nowwhere in the health care industry can they give out your personal information or phonto. NOTHING. Only to you or your Power of Attorney. [ They can't even release medical records between doctors or medical instituions without your written consent or that of your POA for health care. Supposedly. They aren't supposed to tell anyone anything verbally, in writing, over audio or video. It includes financial info. But, they all yap. Also, they really aren't supposed to fax info between parties- even between medical providers, as faxes could easily head to the wrong destination. ]
