Communication in Healthcare

Indentify a regulatory issue impacting communication in health care organizations today. Explain how this issue might affect the healthcare organization
Lots of possibilities in the topic of HIPAA.
For example, my elderly parents' doctor cannot communicate any details of their medical conditions, test results, etc., unless they give express permission to the doctor that he can do so.
What type of impact do you think these basic privacy laws have on family members' ability to help make decisions or to even know if there are decisions to be made?
