Bill Salamander being one of the consultants working in the medical records department is expected to have signed and agreed to abide by the policies of (HIPPA).

The reason for doing this is because one I am trying to abide by the rules of the policies that guard my profession. Second I would not like to do what I expect some not to do to me. And lastly I would do this protect the institution that I am working for from such fraudsters.
