    It's HIPAA with 2 A's, not HIPPA.

    Give me me what you have for an answer, I can't do your homework for you.

    Obviously a homework problem, and we don't give answers to homework. However - if you tell us what you think the answer is, and why, we'll be glad to check it for you. But here's a hint for you: it's HIPAA, not HIPPA. You better get that right!

    If Nancy's husband doesn't know the name of the patient, how does he know the text came from one of Nancy's patients?
