    • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Team B o
    • BACKGROUND INFORMATION
      • Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act in 1996 to provide safeguards to protect security and confidentiality of patient information.
      • This Act granted Congress 3 years to enact comprehensive legislation regarding health care privacy.
      • In 1999, US Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) proposed regulations protecting patient’s rights against misuse of disclosure of personal information.
      • Finalized regulations were implemented in April 2003 that governed the protection of confidential information.
    • REGULATIONS COVERED UNDER HIPAA
      • Consumer control over health information.
        • Patients are not required to provide personal information during registration process at health care facilities.
        • Written explanation of conditions to use and disclose health information must be provided to patients.
      • Rules regarding medical record release and use.
        • Health information may not be disclosed to patient’s employers or financial institutions without patient authorization.
        • Emergency circumstances, identifying deceased, limited law enforcement activities, and national security needs are areas HIPAA rules permit allow disclosure of health information without individual authorization.
    • REGULATIONS COVERED UNDER HIPAA Cont…
      • Accountability for medical record use and release.
        • Civil and criminal penalties are established for violating patient privacy.
      • Balancing public responsibilities and privacy protections.
        • All medical records and other electronic health information used or disclosed are protected.
        • With situations that involve more stringent state laws that are already in placed, health care organizations must follow the most restrictive law, protecting patient privacy.
        • The provisions of HIPAA apply equally to private and public health care sectors.
    • RAMIFICATION FOR NON-MEDICAL SECURITY IN IT
      • Reduce security transaction costs for affiliated practices.
        • Physicians care about one thing - caring for their patients.
        • By helping these independent practices identify, purchase and manage security solutions, the healthcare organization can help educate their physicians while lowering their own public exposure
    • RAMIFICATION FOR NON-MEDICAL SECURITY IN IT Cont…
      • Security technology will provide at least this minimum level of compliance.
      • Also provides extra protection over and above the HIPAA standard.
    • HIPAA ADVISORY
      • As technology marches on, challenges related to information security will be a critical topic, and remain under the radar of the Security Rule.
      • There may have been "final rules" established for HIPAA, but the delivery and business of healthcare is ever changing.
    • NATIONAL SECURITY ISSUES
      • Since 9/11, terrorism, biological warfare, emergency preparedness, and homeland security have climbed to the top of the country's "hot topics" list.
      • These concerns are bringing healthcare-related issues - and new initiatives - to the forefront.
      • How we integrate the HIPAA regulations (both current and new) presents overwhelming challenges for the healthcare industry.
    • FUTURE FOR HIPAA
      • A search of the internet readily yields hundreds, if not thousands of websites which detail how industry organizations are addressing the ongoing challenge of maintaining HIPAA-compliant cultures as they respond to new initiatives and opportunities.
      • HIPAA re-assessments, privacy, and security program updates, new training, and new opportunities for return on investment (ROI) are being recognized as a necessary part of any plan for new capabilities and operational enhancements.
    • PREVENT INAPPROPIATE PRIVACY-RELATED BEHAVIOR AMONG STAFF
      • Helping the members of your staff integrate HIPAA privacy practices into their daily routines.
      • Providing authoritative guidelines, explanations, scenarios and scripts will show workers how they can meet their HIPAA privacy obligations.
