HIPAA FAQs: Real-Life HIPAA Challenges in Primary Care

About this event:


ECRI Institute on behalf of HRSA presents this FREE program.  The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) can be complex and challenging to interpret and apply. ECRI Institute receives many inquiries from health centers and free clinics on this topic.

Using common themes and scenarios that health centers are likely to encounter, this webinar will explore HIPAA privacy and security FAQs and identify tools and resources to anticipate and address these real-life challenges. Please join us on December 12 or 13, 2018, as we address some of the most popular topics, including:

  •  Managing behavioral health and substance use records (42 CFR Part 2)
  • Releasing medical records—do’s and don’ts
  • Understanding social media and protected health information (PHI)
  • Addressing electronic PHI, including text messages, email, and voicemail
  • Storing PHI on devices (ultrasound, copier, scanner, fax)
  • Addressing physical privacy pitfalls in the medical office environment
