Chief executive officer (CEO) Beranger has recognized that you are an expert in regards to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and would like you to hire you as Silver Creek Hospital’s first HIPAA Compliance Officer. As you begin your new role, CEO Beranger discusses with you the demands of e-health services and applications and the privacy, confidentiality, and ethical concerns that go along with it. She asks that you construct a PowerPoint presentation that you will present to the board of directors with 10–12 slides that explain the ethical importance of privacy, confidentiality, and disclosure and how the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules protect patient information.
CEO Beranger also believes this is a good time to refresh the board with ethical training and asks that you also discuss, in 2–4 slides, the importance of ethics and professional judgment when dealing with confidentiality issues and mandatory disclosure.
