Presented on: Wednesday, July 20, 2022 | 1:00–2:00 p.m. Eastern

Presented by: Scott Kraft, CPMA, CPC, Auditing Specialist – Compliance, DoctorsManagement

A suite of new laws and regulations have changed patient recordkeeping and access standards, creating a potentially costly environment that is more tightly controlled than ever before. 

Central to this evolving landscape are patient right of access standards that have come online through legislation, such as the 21st Century CURES Act, and recent HIPAA guidance. Failure to maintain patient records and allow patients timely access to those records can lead to government investigations, costly fines, and even expensive lawsuits.

In this 60-minute live presentation, you will discover how to avoid pitfalls that have led others into HIPAA breaches, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigations, and other damages to finances and reputation. Plus, you’ll be able to ask our expert speaker questions during the Q&A session at the end of the webinar.

At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the universe of records to which a patient is entitled under the emerging standards
  • Assess whether a patient record request is legitimate on its face or presents problems requiring further inquiries or refusal
  • Describe patients’ basic rights to record access under the HIPAA Privacy Rule
  • Describe how these rights (and recordkeeper responsibilities) have changed under the 21st Century CURES Act and related “information blocking” rules
  • Describe some “hard cases” (e.g., subpoenas) that may look like easy patient record decisions but are not

Agenda

  • Review rules and standards of patient recordkeeping per HIPAA
  • Understand changes to Right of Access rules and standards after the 21st Century CURES Act, CMS and ONC information blocking, and other rules (e.g., difference between PHI and EHI, electronic records access)
  • Navigate new dangers to medical recordkeepers (e.g., the OCR HIPAA Right of Access Initiative prosecutions)
  • Learn who is eligible to get patient records besides the patient (e.g., authorized agents, law enforcement under narrow circumstances, courts of law)
  • Discover the minimum necessary standard
  • Find out what constitutes “timely” patient access and how it varies according to volume, nature of data, and other factors
  • Live Q&A

Who Should Listen?

  • Practice managers
  • Office managers
  • Compliance officers
  • Chief compliance officers
  • HIPAA officers
