User: How do these regulations effect the management of employees, resources, patients and health care?

Weegy: There are many aspects within the health care system that have been affected by HIPAA. [ A few have been chosen to demonstrate the wide-range of this impact, including the cost of health care, the complexities of educating employees and patients, implications for homeland security and disaster planning, issues related to a unique patient identifier, the compilation of personal health records, and the impact on research initiatives. HIPAA has increased patient privacy, even though it may not always feel as though this has happened. The original intentions of this legislation were twofold: standardization and simplification of information transmissions, and cost savings. As we moved from the paper-based medical record, to the standardized electronic health record, there was an expectation of cost savings. Very quickly, compliance initiatives to protect privacy became front and center of everyone's attention and implementation of these initiatives escalated costs. In the short term, rather than reducing costs, there have been increased administrative costs and complexities for clinical practice. Monies have been spent for educational sessions; the development of pamphlets, booklets, and handouts explaining HIPAA; new consent forms; and the salaries for those who were hired to implement the Privacy Rule. Fundraising has also been affected because patients can no longer be contacted unless the patient has signed a separate authorization, specifically for philanthropy. The CIO at Johns Hopkins predicted it could cost $10 million dollars a year, based on a combination of costs and lost revenues (Blackburn, 2004). Ultimately, the HIPAA goals of simplification and reduced costs will be realized, as the electronic health record becomes the norm in health care. ]
