Watch Robin interview Health Care Attorney and HIPAA trainer John Murdoch on the complex HIPAA Privacy Laws. HIPAA Privacy Laws are very complex and have both a federal and state component. HIPAA Attorneys should be well versed in the law and need to be up to date on HIPAA law changes and HIPAA related court decisions. It is quite a task for HIPAA Attorneys to stay up to date on the HIPAA laws and virtually impossible for Health Care Professionals to know all the HIPAA rules to stay HIPAA Compliant. There are many HIPAA Violations horror stories in the news; one of the most popular is missing or stolen laptops. When a covered HIPAA entity loses or misplaces a laptop that is not considered secure, the covered HIPAA entity needs to notify all of its patients that may have data on the missing computer. This must be done in a public way, and is a nightmare situation for medical practices. Health Care Practices should be trained on the HIPAA Privacy Laws at least once a year, or when a key staff member leaves the practice. HIPAA training should be at least and hour and a half. Proper HIPAA training helps keep medical practices HIPAA compliant and avoids HIPAA penalties. It is good practice to attend HIPAA seminars and HIPAA training when possible to make sure your practice stays HIPAA compliant. Staying up to date with the complex HIPAA laws and following proper procedures will help your practice stay HIPAA compliant and avoid HIPAA violations. During the video Health Care Attorney John Murdoch covers some of the key points covered at the HIPAA seminar, which include: What is a covered HIPAA entity? Covered HIPAA entities are defined as health plans, healthcare clearinghouses, and healthcare providers who transmit any health information in electronic form in connection with a covered transaction. What is a covered HIPAA transaction? A covered HIPAA transaction includes the following: Healthcare claims, healthcare payment, healthcare remittance advice, coordination of benefits, healthcare claim status, enrollment and disenrollment in a health plan, eligibility for a health plan, health plan premium payments, referral certification, etc. Healthcare Practices must implement reasonable and appropriate HIPAA policies and HIPAA procedures to comply with the standards, implementation, specifications, or other requirements of the HIPAA Security Regulations. Healthcare Practices may change its HIPAA policies and HIPAA procedures at any time, provided that the changes are documented and are implemented in accordance with the HIPAA Security Regulations. HIPAA compliant documentation is required to maintain the policies and procedures implemented to comply with the HIPAA Security Regulations in written or electronic form. If an action, activity, or assessment is required by the HIPAA Security Regulations to be documented, the Medical Practice must maintain a written or electronic record of such activity, or assessment. This HIPAA standard has three required implementation specifications: A time limit of six years from the date of its creation or the date it was last in effect, whichever is later. Medical Practice must also make the HIPAA documentation available to those persons responsible for implementing the HIPAA procedures. Medical Practices must also periodically review its HIPAA documentation, and update as needed in response to changes. Proper Administrative Safeguard of HIPAA documentation is required under the HIPAA Security Regulations.
