The Ultimate Guide To Tennis Elbow #infographic #tenniselbow

Have you ever heard of lateral epicondylitis? Or perhaps tennis elbow may sound more familiar. Believe it or not, in the US there are over 200.000 cases of lateral epicondylitis per year, and it is a very common injury word wide.

The pain is due to the inflammation of the tendons or muscles caused by repetitive motion, hence its name.

25 summer skincare tips you probably don’t know about #Infographic #Skin

Summer has always been the best season of the year. It is when we enjoy barbecue & swimming pool parties and beach outings. It also the time when you can finally wear less and bare more skin. This means soaking up under the sun and exposing more skin as you enjoy the summer breeze. That being said, it is the time of the year when it is most important that you take extra care and protection for your skin.

Sun’s rays may be positive for your health and skin, but too much exposure from it will lead to skin problems. Prolonged sun exposure can cause dark pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines and acne breakouts. Sure you don’t want to have these as you lay bare with your skin.

The Do’s and Don’ts of HIPAA #Infographic #HIPAA

As a healthcare provider, it’s critical to know and understand the information that you’re able to share under the HIPAA law. HIPAA stands for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, and it was introduced in 1996. Its primary concern was to make sure that health insurance was provided to employees that were in between jobs, and to diminish the use of one’s health information in fraudulent situations.

In 2003, the Privacy Rule came into being, which was a way to protect the personal health information of every individual. Even with the law in place, there are actions that are acceptable with a written authorization, but there are also numerous actions that are illegal unless authorized. This infographic will outline the different actions that require authorization and ones that healthcare providers can do without the consent of a patient.
