)-- DataFile Technologies will host an informational webinar for clients on Wednesday, March 23, 2016 at 1:00pm CDT regarding Health and Human Services’ recently issued additional guidance in the form of a FAQ regarding patient’s rights to access their health information under the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
This webinar will provide a broad overview of the information contained in the FAQ. Kathryn Ayers Wickenhauser, HIPAA Compliance Consultant and Gary Powell, Compliance Officer, will dissect the FAQ guidelines and discuss ways these additional guidelines may affect clients’ release of information processes. More specifically, the webinar will review guidance on the format in which a patient may request and receive their health information, as well as the methods to determine appropriate costs for the release of information service.
“While we are all still learning what these additional guidelines mean to our clients, our goal is to help attendees of Wednesday’s webinar be better prepared to initiate this guidance in their release of information process, in order to remain compliant with the HIPAA Privacy Rule,” says Ayers Wickenhauser.
