HIPAA and EHRs: How to Comply with the New Regulations and What to Ask of your Vendor
Thursday, July 26, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
This 90-minute webinar will review the new and proposed HIPAA Privacy and Security regulations and discuss their effects on the use of Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
Why Should You Attend:
Many of the new changes to HIPAA focus directly on a number of aspects of the use of electronic records, such as the accounting of disclosures and tracking of accesses of records of all kinds, even for treatment, payment, and healthcare operations, and the provision of records in electronic formats when requested. These proposed rules have a tremendous impact on not only EHRs, but also any electronic systems that hold protected health information in the designated record set.
- What is an EHR under the regulations?
- New proposed rules for access of electronic records and EHRs

- Proposed new restrictions on disclosures and their impacts

- Q&A session
Areas Covered in the Seminar:
- The new regulations change the way individuals have access to their records, and how much they can find out about who has accessed their records.
- Individuals can request an accounting of disclosures of their health information including those made for purposes of treatment, payment, or healthcare operations, from an electronic health record, going back three years.
- Individuals will be able to request an access report of all uses and disclosures of PHI from any records in the Designated Record Set – clearly defining that set is now a priority.
