It has been one year since the HHS Office for Civil Rights issued new guidance on Individuals’ Right under HIPAA to Access their Health Information. Access to information is an important element in empowering patients and removing barriers to access is a worthy goal. The new guidance, however, had the effect of altering the business case for ROI and ushering new challenges in distinguishing whether certain 3rd party requests are in fact on behalf of patients.

HIM, ROI and compliance leaders embraced the value of the new guidance for patients and stepped up to comply. Many have leveraged the goal of access for individuals to bring about needed innovation in ROI practices. This webinar will review the access guidance and the ground rules for compliance.  It will also describe the other drivers of change for ROI and best practices from health care organizations that have succeeded at leveraging the new guidance to advance their change goals.

In this webinar, Angela Rose, former Privacy Practice Excellence Director for AHIMA, Linda Kloss, President of Kloss Strategic Advisors and Jim Moore, Chief Legal Officer at Verisma will explore the policy, process, technology and business changes that healthcare organizations are making to comply with the access guidance and advance cost-effective, fully compliant ROI across the enterprise. It will provide participants with an assessment tool that they can use in driving change in their organizations.

Attend the webinar to learn:

  • Why HHS stepped up focus on patient access to health information and what the guidance calls for
  • The changing business case for ROI
  • How leading health systems have leveraged a compliance policy change to introduce innovation
  • Elements of ROI innovation for reliable enterprise compliance and cost control
