Imagine that you are catching up with a relative or an old friend whom you have not seen in some time. You mention that you are training as a medical assistant (MA), and the friend or relative says they do not trust electronic health records—that it’s too easy to have your identity stolen from the information in your records.
Write a 200-300 word response about what you might say to this person to address their concerns. In your essay, explain what HIPAA is, and what regulations it provides to protect the security and confidentiality of electronic medical records, both technologically and in health care professionals’ behavior. You may also go online and find sources to back up your argument; reference any sources you use in the APA format (these references will not count in the overall 200-300 word count).
