New Guide From CCH Addresses HIPAA Security Compliance
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., August 12, 2003) – To support health care institutions implementing the HIPAA Security Rule, CCH INCORPORATED, a leading provider of health law and compliance information and software, has released the CCH HIPAA Security Guide, comprehensive HIPAA security information in loose-leaf and online media to help subscribers comply with the security rules (www.health.cch.com/onlinestore).
The CCH HIPAA Security Guide provides information and tools for the practical application of HIPAA security provisions, which mandate the confidentiality, integrity and availability of electronic private health information.
"All covered entities which create, receive, maintain or transmit electronic private health information, must take appropriate physical, administrative and technical measures to ensure the privacy of this information without impeding the quality of care," said CCH managing editor Jeff Reinholtz. "With CCH’s HIPAA Security Guide, subscribers will receive the information and implementation tools needed to be in total compliance and avoid costly penalties," he added.
Loose-Leaf Book, Online Access
Comprehensive HIPAA security information ensures that subscribers will learn the appropriate physical, administrative and technical measures needed to follow the HIPAA Security rules. Users of the HIPAA Security Guide have access to a regularly updated loose-leaf volume containing all of the following:
- Summary of HIPAA Security Rules

- Practical Glossary
- Implementation Tools and Documents

In addition to the printed Guide, subscribers gain electronic access to HIPAA Security forms, policies and procedures that can easily be downloaded and customized through CCH’s exclusive Internet Research NetWork. For example, they can see what a sample policy and procedure on the Electronic Data Transmission rules looks like and can modify it electronically for their own use.
