We've Only Just Begun

For many of us, this HIPAA thing is old hat, but for many others, it is a big churning mass of indigestible flotsam cast adrift in a sea of confusion and mixed metaphor.
For those who would like a quick overview of what this whole thing is about, our friends at the Washington State Medical Association have compiled a very nice little primer at http://www.wsma.org/memresources/hipaa.html .
Like a lot of these sources, it was put together before the final Security rule, and so is a little sketchy in some places, but overall it is a great way to at least get an idea of what's going on.
