HIPAA and Patient Interactions

Robert M. Tennant of the MGMA explores how to keep patient interactions at your medical practice HIPAA compliant.

Is calling out a patient's name in the waiting room a violation of HIPAA? What about e-mail between patients and practices?

In this video, Robert M. Tennant, senior policy advisor for the Medical Group Management Association's Government Affairs Office, addresses everyday interactions at medical practices in terms of what is safe and what requires a little more discretion.

Tennant will present "Critical HIPAA Privacy and Security Issues Impacting Medical Groups" at the MGMA14 Conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday, Oct. 28 from 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
