Confidentiality, Privacy & Security: Free $peech Is Not Free When It Comes to a HIPAA Breach For Business Office Professionals
As Business Office professionals we are trained and driven to collect cash for our organization. In fact, for many of us it’s a challenge to collect Top Dollar in the office! More and more payers however are asking us to provide justification for services provided before getting paid which slows down the process. While it’s a race to collect the cash we are also obligated to hold PHI (Protected Health Information) in confidence and are trusted by our patients to be confidentiality gurus.
The concepts of Confidentiality, Privacy and Security appear to be as interchangeable as Kleenex and tissue, but they are fundamentally different and serve distinct purposes. Let’s keep the cash coming in and not flowing out the door. Remember, free $peech isn’t free when it involves a HIPAA breach.
This webinar will cover HIPAA hot topics and unusual requests for information such as requests for information on minors and deceased patients.
