Overview: This lesson is going to get back to the basics using multiple real-life scenarios and “what if’s”.

This lesson is going to get back to the basics using multiple real-life scenarios and “what if’s”.  My goal is to make this very confusing and not well explained law easy to understand for the typical staff member.  I will uncover myths versus reality as it relates to this enigmatic law based on over 1000 risk assessments performed as well as years of experience in dealing directly with the Office of Civil Rights HIPAA auditors.   

I will also point out multiple court cases I have been affiliated with where a staff member of a hospital or clinic has been sued or even imprisoned!   In addition, we sill speak of some new changed relating to the COVID19 pandemic.

I will also speak to real life audits conducted by the Federal government (I’ve been on both sides of these audits) what your highest risks are for being fined (some of the risk factors may surprise you).  In addition, this course will cover the highest risk factors for being sued for wrongful disclosures of PHI and the manner in which patients are now using state laws to sue for wrongful disclosures.

Overview: Social distancing to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus is effective, but patient care has typically required a face-to-face encounter, which can cause the spread of the virus as infected individuals travel to and from appointments. Social distancing to help prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus is effective, but patient care has typically required a face-to-face encounter, which can cause the spread of the virus as infected individuals travel to and from appointments. It is essential to be able to provide telemedicine services in order to reach the most individuals without risking more harm.
HIPAA regulations put controls on the appropriate technologies to use for communications, and can require that a Business Associate relationship be established when using any services that involve any persistence of custody of Protected Health Information. Violations of HIPAA rules can lead to penalties in the millions of dollars.
HHS has announced the relaxation of enforcement pertaining to the use of teleconferencing technologies to provide remote medical services, allowing the use of such services to expand quickly, but limits on "public-facing" conferencing technologies remain. Providers need to adopt the necessary technologies without fear of HIPAA violation enforcement actions during the COVID-19 Emergency and must understand the limits of what is permitted in order to best serve patients and their families.
HHS has also issued guidance to remind healthcare providers of the allowances for communications with family and friends, with disaster relief organizations, and to prevent a serious and imminent threat to the health or safety of individuals or the public.
In addition to the need for remote communications, first responders may need to take steps to protect themselves and the public from infected patients, that could indicate the condition of the patient to others, in violation of privacy regulations.
HHS has issued guidance that permits the necessary communications take place in the interest of public safety, and otherwise allows communications necessary when needed to provide treatment, when required by law, when first responders may be at risk for an infection, and when disclosure is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat, to protect the health and safety of first responders and the public.
HHS Guidance also reminds us of reasonable allowances for communicating with the family and friends of a patient when it is in the patient's best interest to do so.
It is not always possible to obtain formal permission to contact family and friends of a patient and the rules do permit appropriate communication, relating to any issues at hand, when professional judgement dictates. In addition, sharing information with disaster relief organizations, such as the Red Cross, is permitted as necessary to provide care and respond to the emergency.
This Webinar will help healthcare professionals understand how to best provide services during the emergency and meet HIPAA requirements at the same time. Under the emergency declaration, HHS makes it clear that the care of the patient comes first, and privacy must be maintained as reasonably possible, but recognizes the unique challenges of dealing with the emergency, and the need to ensure that the communication necessary to protect individuals and the public takes place appropriately.

They may take further steps before the date of this webinar and if so, we will include them.
