Product Description

Recent HIPAA regulations, increased enforcement, and incentives to adopt electronic health records, have combined to create the perfect storm for the privacy and security of protected health information (PHI). 

Many of the new changes to HIPAA focus directly on aspects of the use of electronic records, such as the accounting of disclosures of all kinds, even for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations, and the provision of records in electronic formats when requested.

 Moving to newer electronic records systems and qualifying for the funding will require the kind of attention to privacy and security that health information has always deserved.

Join Jim Sheldon- Dean for this 60-minute web event to learn what policies need to be changed and how. 

Jim will discuss how disclosures must be tracked in an EHR, review the various ways patient records can be supplied electronically.

Take a look at what’s covered:

  • The new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records, and how much they can find out about who has accessed their records.
  • Individuals can request an accounting of disclosures of their health information including those made for purposes of treatment, payment, or healthcare operations, from an electronic health record, going back three years.
  • Individuals have the right to obtain electronic copies of their health information that is stored electronically, from any electronic system in the HIPAA designated record set.
  • Individuals can now request certain restrictions on disclosures that you must honor.
  • Meaningful Use requirements for EHR funding call for a HIPAA Information Security Risk Analysis and implementation of risk mitigation measures.
  • New audit and penalty requirements increase the need to make sure you are in compliance before HHS OCR knocks on the door.
  • The new penalty structure and plans for audits mean that you are more likely to be audited for HIPAA compliance, and you may be facing significantly higher penalties for non-compliance than ever before.
