It seems not a day goes by without a news item about a medical practice or hospital having to pay millions and notify its numerous patients about public exposure of protected health information (PHI). And — hopefully — not a day goes by that you hope not to be in a similar situation.
With changes to the HIPAA Omnibus Rule taking effect last year, the directive for medical practices to ensure the privacy of their patient data is coming under greater scrutiny by HHS' Office of Civil Rights.
In this live webinar, recorded on March 18, 2014, healthcare attorneys Ericka L. Adler and Rachel V. Rose explain the revised HIPAA guidelines and offer five key ways to keep your medical practice compliant with data security policies. They also address a series of attendee questions on faxing patient information, use of practice-provided cellphones, and other inquiries.
