Random Rambling rant

It’s HIPAA, not HIPPA

Screen Shot 2016-06-14 at 8.12.32 AMI’m weak and let little things bother me. I admit it. This one little mistake drives me crazy and I see it way too often. For me, the email below was the straw that broke this camel’s back! Can we please get people to spell HIPAA correctly? Is this too much to ask? Perhaps it would help if people knew what HIPAA stands for: The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Thanks for listening. That concludes my rant. See examples below.

This is a really common mistake. Check out these examples (or just Google HIPPA).
