Possible source of confusion...disclosures

    This past weekend I had a conversation with privacy officers and we identified the snip below from a book that some HIPAA privacy officers read when preparing for various certifications.  Why this is noteworthy is because of the error.  As was the case when the HIPAA privacy rule was initially implemented, we do not need to track all disclosures as described below.  For some time I've been curious why some people get confused on what needs to be tracked.  This may be one reason.
