    HIPAA compliance is one of the most cited and least understood laws in the typical medical practice.

    Although HIPAA has been in place for decades, it has changed rapidly in the last ten years due to the rapid proliferation of technology in medicine.

    In addition to these progressive changes, the law itself underwent a major overhaul in 2013 resulting in any practice that has not updated their HIPAA materials since that time being out of compliance.

    Government right-to-access enforcement is increasing. In fact, it is now easier than ever for your patients to file a HIPAA access compliant online - they simply have to click a button.

    And considering that about a third of HIPAA complaints involve right-of-access issues, you can’t afford not to attend this training. This session is essential for everyone at your practice who handles the disclosure of patient information.

    Areas Covered in the Session: Here is a sample of the no-nonsense right-to-access compliance strategies you'll receive by attending this upcoming online training:

    Reveal how to determine whether State or Federal right-to-access laws apply

    Decipher what “timely” release of patient information to stop complaints in their tracks

    Ease patient frustrations when records are legitimately delayed

    Determine when and how much you can charge for patient record duplication requests

    Identify your obligations regarding record formats when patients ask for access

    Clinch acceptable records access handling for delayed COVID-19 test results

    Documentation advice to audit-proof your actions and overcome violation allegations

    Provide a medical record summary that meets patient's needs and protects your practice

    Lock down patient communication musts that keep you out of hot water

    Respond to investigations with specific steps to stop financial damage

    Pin down when you really can implement “information blocking” guidelines

    Enact protocols for staff to adhere to parents access rights for minors

    Verify when you really can, and should, deny a patient access to their records

    Establish clear staff guidelines when personal representatives request patient records

    Implement documentation standards regarding patient access dates

    And so much more

    Like most providers, you probably associate HIPAA violations exclusively with a lost laptop, or leaving patient information in plain view, it is so much more than that. You must also take action to ensure that you provide patients with access to their medical records based on the right-to-access” laws. It is essential that you implement compliance standards to adhere to these laws immediately.
