Course Content Example 1:
Why Do I Need a Refresher?
 
Created over 20 years ago, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) continues to play a significant role in the everyday practice of health care professionals and their business associates.
 
Maintaining the privacy and security of patient information is more challenging than ever with the increased use of portable electronic devices, such as laptops and mobile phones.
 
Modifications have been made to HIPAA over time as a result of the HITECH Act of 2009 and the Omnibus Final Rule of 2013.
These changes included:
  • Strengthened existing HIPAA requirements for Privacy and Security
  • Expanded individual’s rights relating to their PHI
  • Increased enforcement of HIPAA, including higher fines for non-compliance
  • Addressed notification for breaches of PHI

Course Content Example 2:
Privacy Considerations within the Medical Office
 
Patient Sign-in sheet:
  • This is acceptable as an incidental disclosure
  • Require only the minimum necessary amount of personal information on sign-in sheet
    • Medical information, such as the reason for visit, should not be included
  • Consider the use of sheet with removable labels after each sign-in
Calling out patients name in the waiting room
  • This is acceptable as an incidental disclosure
  • Apply the minimum necessary standard and use only first name, when appropriate
Procedure for faxing PHI
