The Use of Apps for Health Information Access is on the Rise: Is your Organization Onboard?
Pre-Approved for 1 AHIMA CEU Credit.
The trendline is unprecedented. Over the past year there has been a 300% increase in the rate with which patients are requesting and retrieving their health information using apps. COVID-19 has accelerated adoption of apps for Release of Information (ROI), but the benefits to patients and health systems will ensure that this transformation is lasting. This not only improves turnaround times and lowers costs, it supports compliance and sound security practices. Apps are an essential element in the digital transformation of ROI systems and services.
This webinar will demonstrate how the Verisma Request App™(VRA) facilitates access by individuals and for continuity of care. Essential technical and process features will be demonstrated including authentication, security and compliance. Levels of integration will be defined and implementation best-practices will be described. The latest update to VRA will be demonstrated as it now offers the same convenience to 3rd party attorney organizations.
Federal policy is squarely on expanding access and removing barriers. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) is encouraging the use of apps for access. The webinar will describe how VRA supports compliance for current and proposed changes to the HIPAA Privacy Rules.
- Describe how VRA facilitates secure and well authenticated requests and release
- Understand essential technology, standards, privacy, and security requirements
