From the law enforcement exception to employee records, HIPAA for Prosecutors answers the most commonly encountered questions by Texas prosecutors in dealing with the new federal medical records privacy law. Former TDCAA Research Attorney Markus Kypreos has compiled a book that provides an easily understandable introduction into questions about how HIPAA affects prosecutors in their criminal cases and in their duties as the advisor for county governmental entities. Chapter titles include: Introduction to HIPAA; Permitted Disclosures to Law Enforcement; Aquiring Medical Information; and Civil Issues and HIPAA. The full text of the HIPAA statute is included as an appendix, along with useful forms.
