Privacy And Security Rules Are Now Being Enforced Under HIPAA and that includes Electronic Medical Information
If your medical information is not kept confidential or handled in a secure way while sharing protected health information (PHI) online or saving it to “the cloud”, you can face liability.
Many providers think that online or electronic resources and social media are not subject to HIPAA like physical offices or facilities and policing online activities and cloud storage is difficult but the recent case makes clear that providers must have similar procedures in place and act just as diligently with PHI in email or on the Internet, on Facebook or with an online storage company as they would with information on computers.
Register now for this 1-hour power packed session where our expert speaker Wayne J. Miller, Esq, will discuss the recent settlement and the lessons to take from for health care providers that rely on electronic media to communicate and store PHI. Wayne will also discuss the best practices for physicians, groups and facilities that want to tighten up their procedures and highlight precautions that should be addressed immediately to lessen potential liability risk.
Take A Look At What's Covered:
Failures that lead to sanctions in the recent HIPAA physician group settlement.
Security features that email systems must have when using to share PHI.
Can you use commercial cloud websites for sharing or storing medical information?
What do you need from vendors or contractors to assure compliance?
Best practices for providers engaged in social media.
Steps to take now to shore up privacy and security compliance.
