HIPAA, not HIPPA

If you struggle with HIPAA/HIPPA, you’re not alone. Even journalism’s top spelling authority got it wrong on Instagram once (cough APA Style Guide cough).

But, if you’re in healthcare, you know that HIPAA is a biggie, so it’s important to get it right regardless of what department you work in (yes - even Finance and people managers should know this one). Use this info-packed graphic to break down every letter so your people will not only know what HIPAA stands for but will also understand the meaning behind it. Oh, and the “I”? This will break the habit of calling it “information” once and for all.   

Share this graphic with anyone at your org who wants it! (And maybe forward it to anyone who accidentally used “HIPPA” in their latest communication. Subtle.)
