This webinar continues Verisma’s discussion with HIM leaders on the front lines in New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Boston and North Carolina.  Four weeks ago, Verisma compiled emerging best practices for HIM continuity and safety as health systems rapidly prepared for the expected surge of COVID patients. Based on interviews with HIM leaders at various stages of preparation, 3 key initiatives and 8 emerging best practices were described and discussed in a special Webinar presented on April 1.

Now, four weeks later, this webinar will again provide insight into HIM responses and lessons learned at health systems that may now be on the downside of the COVID curve. This Part II webinar updates lessons across all 8 best practice areas.  It focuses on health information access and disclosure management practices, including release of information, and how they are impacted by the urgent need to distance workers, modify access processes, and innovating to maintain and improve services. Participants will learn about steps they should be taking now and what risks they should be planning for to ensure workforce and level of service during a time of extreme disruption.

This webinar is designed to answer your questions and share data and trends that will speed your decision-making. The discussion will be facilitated by Julia Applegate, Verisma’s SVP Client Operations and Linda Kloss, MA, RHIA, Regulatory Policy Leader for Verisma and President of Kloss Strategic Advisors.  Health system representatives will participate as live discussants and contributing interviewees.

This is a unique opportunity to confirm that your planning accounts for the range of issues for health information access and disclosure management business continuity, employee safety, service responsiveness, privacy and security. The webinar will also explore the possible ways in which the experiences of this pandemic may shape access and disclosure going forward.  By learning together, we can all move faster and with greater confidence.
