Event Type: Webinar
HIM Domain: Confidentiality Privacy and Security
Continuing Education Units Available: 2
Medical identity theft is increasing dramatically, and the need for better governance over patient privacy is a glaring reality. Not only do medical professionals need full awareness of federal laws regarding the protection of medical information, but organizations also need to put protocols in place to safeguard employees, patients, doctors and sensitive data. It is time to step up our security standards and protect the patients who put their confidence in our teams. This webinar gives attendees a comprehensive review of HIPAA standards, including the Privacy and Security Rules for patients’ protected health information (PHI). The speaker discusses when, where, how, why, and with whom it is appropriate to disclose personal health information—and when it is not. During this session, the audience also learns about the rise in medical identity theft—what it means, how it happens, the threats to the organization and its patients, and how to prevent it from happening. Attendees receive a complete discourse on patient privacy and ideas to put security protocols in place within their organizations. Protecting your patients also means protecting your job and your organization. This session shows you how to approach this new era of security in a practical yet proactive manner.
