Effectively communicating with your patients is becoming increasingly important to providing quality care. With numerous phone calls and e-mails sent from a practice on a given day, the risk of accidently disclosing patient information is constantly growing.
HIPAA regulation set specific standards for how to protect the transmission of sensitive health care data. The law identifies this data as protected health information (PHI). PHI includes any demographic information that can be used to identify a patient.
There are specific rules about how to respond to patient requests involving the uses and disclosures of PHI. Understanding exactly how and when PHI may or may not be shared is essential to protecting your practice from liability in the event of a HIPAA violation.
Take advantage of this MOA member benefit where AOAExcel’s HIPAA compliance partner, Compliancy Group, outlines the uses and disclosures of PHI and actionable methods for implementing HIPAA compliant communications within your practice.
