From the Paper:

"In conclusion, while HIPPA may have brought privacy issues relating to personally identifiable health care information, it also served to create a number of administrative concerns that keep changing as technology continues to increase. Questions arise, such as "How compliance requirements change will based on satellite communication, such as doctors or administrators using wireless networks, Blackberry's or cell-phones to transmit data?" Compliance with accountability requires a strategic approach that must acknowledge the requirement for flexibility and adaptability as laws and compliance mandates change."
