This seminar is designed for medical records directors, business and office managers, hospital administrators, nurses, health information directors and mental health professionals.
As the demand for both access to and confidentiality of medical record information grows, how does the health care provider balance the competing, often clashing, interests? The recently issued HIPAA privacy rules have caused a great deal of uncertainty and risk for providers navigating the maze of state and federal medical confidentiality and access laws. The faculty consists of experienced health care attorneys who regularly advise institutional and individual providers on medical record issues. They will emphasize practical approaches to maintaining good medical records and managing patientsí requests and concerns in light of the new interplay of state and federal medical information requirements.
Whether youíre new to the health care field or have been dealing with these issues for years, this program is for you. The laws have changed, the demands have changed, and the solutions have changed. Register early to participate in this important program.
