Transcript

  • 1. HIPAA and HIM Security
    21 AUG 2011
  • 2. HIPPA
    Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996
    Established by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide national standards for:
    Electronic health care transactions
    National identifiers for providers, health plans, and employers.
  • 3. HIPAA
    HIPAA established standards for electronic health information transactions for certain electronic healthcare transactions, including claims, enrollment, eligibility, payment, and coordination of benefits.
    These standards also mandate that organizations address the security of electronic healthcare information systems (CMS, 2010).
  • 4. HITECH Act
    The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act
    HITECH modernizes existing HIPAA standards for healthcare privacy and security measures
    Enhances HIPAA provisions due to the increased incidence of violations and security breaches of health information
  • 5. HIPAA Breach Notification Rule
    Affects the unauthorized acquisition, access, use or disclosure of unsecured patient health data and information as a result of a security breach (AMA, 2010)
    This Rule does not replace existing HIPAA privacy regulations that permit providers to exchange or collect patient information within certain limits of their practice
  • 6. DATA Breach Defined
    A breach per the AMA (2010) can be defined as:
    The acquisition, access, use, or disclosure of unsecured patient health information which is not permitted by the HIPAA Privacy Rules and compromises the security or privacy of that information
  • 7. Legal Action
    HHS can impose fines for noncompliance as high as $100 per offense, with a maximum of $25,000 per year on any person who violates a provision of the HIPAA rule
    Under "Wrongful Disclosure of Individually Identifiable Health Information," Section 1177 states that a person who knowingly:
    uses or causes to be used a unique health identifier
    obtains individually identifiable health information relating to an individual
    discloses individually identifiable health information to another person
