Each year brings with it promises of new technology, health care, research and innovation. For example in 2013, Johns Hopkins physicians used a woman’s own tissue to rebuild an ear lost to cancer and researchers identified a compound that dramatically bolsters learning and memory when given to mice with a Down syndrome-like condition on the day of birth. Will we still use email or will another technology be the primary means of communication at work? Will there be significant advancements in the cure for AIDS and treatment of obesity? Share your thoughts about how you believe the world will change and advance on today’s Hopkins Happenings Question of the Week?

Keeping patient information confidential is an essential part of patient care. Patients expect that their protected health information (PHI) will be kept private, and failing to guard it could make them question the quality of their health care. Employees may be violating HIPAA without knowing it. Read today’s Hopkins Happenings’ Ask the Expert to read a few things that you should keep in mind, so that you’re in compliance and patients’ information is secure.

Also, if there is a question that you would like to ask an expert on HIPAA, post it in the comments section below.

I might not have authored a scientific publication, but I am proud to be a published author with TFH Publications.    Red-Eared Sliders (Animal Planet Pet Care Library)  (ISBN: 9780793837090 ), can be found in pet stores and on-line.  Shortly before the book was published, I co-authored my first ISBN published paper, "Testudostan: Our Post-Cold War Global Exploitation of a Noble Tortoise", Bull. Chicago Herp. Soc. 45(1):1-9, 2010
