You are encouraged to download and print the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. In addition, research how and why it took nearly seven years to finally mandate compliance with HIPAA regulations. Health care providers typically cringe when HIPAA is mentioned; however, your reading will show how and why there is legal constraint on behaviors. Complete the following: • Develop a synopsis of how the time to HIPPA compliance may have affected patients, providers, third-party payers, and administrators. Include a listing of the Web sites and resources you accessed. • Create a summary offering advice for how to implement a mandate in less than seven years from the perspective of a health care manager. • Develop a short plan for implementing a mandate that addresses the political, legal, or social constraints you noticed in the long process for mandating HIPPAA regulations. o You may suggest a plan for implementing a general mandate or a specific one you have in mind. (You can make up a story or use a real-life situation you are familiar with.) o Include some details such as where you would obtain financing and how might you meet compliance standards and obtain qualified staff.
