This healthcare compliance training will provide an overview of the required documents for the use and disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI).
Why Should You Attend:
This course will sort through the myths and misconceptions of what PHI is, the intent of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), processes and accountability requirements for use, disclosure, and maintenance of PHI, identify who and what a covered entity is and identify who is responsible for protecting what information.
The session will address minimum necessary disclosures, the scope of responsibilities associated with managing medical records to include penalties for impermissible disclosures, individual client rights, and provide best business practice. We will cover PHI requests for individual and 3rd parties, administrative hearing requests, and research. We will also cover requests related to treatment, payment, eligibility, general public, disclosures related to improving or modifying public programs, or from those looking to increase their target market.
Understanding individual rights and your responsibilities will facilitate the smooth exchange of PHI, ensure accountability and provide peace of mind. This course will help you get on track with creating compliant forms and implementing accountability, transparency and trust with the clients you serve.
