User: what does pt means in your answer you just gave for the question Does patients right affect how health care workers interact wit patients

Weegy: It is the responsibility of every healthcare worker to respect patients’ rights, making sure that he or she does not violate the privacy of patient information. It is also the law. [ Very soon, if you aren’t already, you will likely be receiving special training related to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and its effect on patient communication. It is to your advantage to understand what HIPAA means about how you do your job. Some of the rules affecting healthcare communication are about to change. Starting in 2002, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, commonly known as HIPAA, will take effect. Enacted in 1996 as the Kassenbaum-Kennedy Act, its provisions affect billing, medical records, patient privacy, and the electronic transmission of medical data. Healthcare professionals need to be ready for the changes it will bring about. Once HIPAA is fully implemented, healthcare organizations will need to inform patients about their rights. Throughout this process, it is likely that there will be media attention about how HIPAA affects patients and providers alike. Your understanding of the law is important both to ensure your patients realize the benefits the law provides and to help you organization meet the new requirements. Failure to comply with the provisions will be costly, says L. William Katz, DMA, CMC, president of Katz & Associates. If a healthcare worker knowingly violates the regulations, there can be both criminal and civil penalties. Mistakes that are embarrassing now, says Katz, will be expensive under the new law. The regulations under HIPAA are extensive and complex. Here is a brief overview of some of the major provisions regarding privacy of patient information and how they affect you. ]
