Trending White Paper
This month our most popular download resource was the HIPAA Compliant Developer Guide by Atlantic.Net.
Healthcare is a tricky field when it comes to development because there is an additional layer of concern beyond what is needed for the typical website: federal compliance. You need to meet the regulations mandated both by HIPAA and by HITECH.
The intended audience of this ebook is those concerned with software development across the entire spectrum. That includes readers who are taking on their first project that involves the need for a federally compliant (i.e., legal) healthcare environment, as well as people who have built medical apps in the past and just need a refresher on core concepts and terminology. It includes developers and those who are managing development teams.
