    The primary focus of this study was to determine why and how small businesses implement content management and to clarify the relationship of content management to regulatory compliance issues presented by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). A combination exploratory/narrative case study was used to investigate three organizations that use content management to improve their businesses and guard their businesses against litigation for noncompliance with HIPAA and SOX. Each person interviewed expressed satisfaction with his content management system and each suggested his organization operates more efficiently because of the content management system.
