Question and answer
Who owns the medical record and what are its purposes? Discuss the important role that health care workers play in documentation, confidentiality, maintenance and credibility of the medical record.
Health is a personal and private matter. The health information that patients share with physicians could change their lives or cause them to lose jobs or friends. [ Nevertheless, medical information must be recorded in medical records and communicated to others in the course of treatment and payment. To ensure that health information is protected from misuse, a federal law, the Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act, or HIPAA (pronounced hip-uh), regulates how electronic patient information is stored and shared. HIPAA has three rules that are important in medical offices: 1. HIPAA Privacy Rule—The privacy requirements cover patients’ health information. 2. HIPAA Security Rule—The security requirements state the administrative, technical, and physical safeguards that are required to protect patients’ health information. 3. HIPAA Electronic Transaction and Code Sets Standards—These standards require every provider who does business electronically to use the same health care transactions, code sets, and identifiers. ............. ]
