+ - Advice on Creating HIPAA-compliant Websites?-> 2

supahdren (559625) writes "I'm an emergency medicine doctor who also has a fairly serious background in building database-backended websites. I'm currently creating an online system to track and follow-up on patients that I see so that I can close the feedback loop on diagnoses that I make and outcomes of treatments that I give. I'm worried, though, because the law that governs access to and retention of personal health information in the US, HIPAA, is obtuse and complicated, and I don't know if my final product will be compliant with it. Have any slashdotters built HIPAA-compliant websites before? What are the actual requirements? Any pitfalls to watch out for?"

The Sims 3 Racks Up Over 180,000 Downloads Prior To Release 187

Posted by Soulskill
from the big-spenders dept.
Bloomberg reports that pirated versions of EA's The Sims 3 were downloaded over 180,000 times between May 18 and May 21. The game will not be officially released until June 2nd, and it does not make use of SecuROM for DRM. Quoting: "That outpaces the 400,000 downloads over three weeks for Electronic Arts' Spore, the most-pirated game of 2008. ... Copies of the game available on file-sharing Web sites aren't the full version, Electronic Arts said. 'The pirated version is a buggy, pre-final build of the game,' Holly Rockwood, a company spokeswoman, said in an e-mailed statement. 'It's not the full game. Half the world — an entire city — is missing from the pirated copy.'"

If you were vomiting, it probably was NOT the flu. See: Flu symptoms: coughing, sneezing, runny nose, achy muscles, fatigue, lethargy, fever Things not on the list: vomiting, diarrhea Nausea and vomiting from the flu can occur, especially in children, but they are not the hallmark of the disease. If you were "power hurling," you almost certainly did not have the flu.
