Learn The Latest HIPAA Privacy And Security Rules Governing Electronic Recordkeeping And Patient Privacy

HIPAA Compliance: Where Do You Stand?

The confidential storage, retrieval and decimation of electronic patient records and healthcare information is a critical issue facing today's healthcare professionals. Newer updates and changes to existing laws and regulations have increased the chances of non-compliance, and some healthcare organizations (yours, perhaps?) may be at risk of serious violations without even realizing it.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was passed by Congress in 1996 to create a set of national standards for the transference of electronic health data. The HIPAA Privacy Rule was established to protect the privacy and security of personal health information, and set limits and conditions on the uses and disclosures of such information without patient authorization.

You may think you've got all your bases covered, but with HIPAA's complex guidelines and newer rules and regulations, it is easy to overlook key issues while accessing, storing and transferring sensitive patient records. This workshop is designed to help you protect the rights of your patients, while also protecting your practice or facility from non-compliance accusations and complaints.What You'll Learn:In this seminar, we'll take a fascinating look at the following real-life situations and reveal exactly how they should be handled to remain in compliance with HIPAA guidelines and protect your patients' rights.
  • A family member requests patient information regarding a loved one in your care. Who are you required to provide information to in this case? Who must you legally exclude? How do you handle upset or irate family members who are demanding information you legally cannot provide to them?
  • Law enforcement personnel have arrived at your facility asking for information on a new patient who is suspected in a crime. What can you provide and what can't you provide according to the law?
  • While handling a request from a patient, you realize that information stored on a computer disk has become lost. What should you do next? What are your responsibilities to the patient in question? What are your risks and how can you mitigate these in the future?
  • The front desk at your practice is very busy with patients and doesn't have a lot of room for patient privacy. What can you do to increase privacy with limited options?
  • A patient's records were left open in view of other patients — what process/procedure has been violated, what are the risks to your organization and how do you correct this situation so that it doesn't happen again?
  • You suspect that someone has been able to log into your e-records system — what steps must you immediately take to stop the breach and secure your records?
  • Your practice has moved from paper to electronic files — what do you do with all the paper? And, even though you've moved to electronic files, your organization still relies on some paper information. How do you ensure information is properly transferred to the e-files and how long must you retain the paper information?
