Medical Record Retention and Destruction

Protect your organization from legal hardships concerning patient medical record privacy, security and management requirements.This topic is intended to be an overview of the general legal concepts applicable to medical records and destruction. Included in the overview is a discussion of what constitutes a medical record, management of hard copy and electronic records, HIPAA/HITECH/Omnibus Rule considerations, storage and management of the medical record, management of the record in special circumstances, applicable time limits, and oversight of record destruction. As medical record storage, management, security requirements, and legal obligations change; and privacy concerns evolve and are enhanced by federal and state law and regulatory changes, the ability to manage records and be sensitive to the implications of the web of issues related to the same is something those involved in record oversight need to be familiar with moving forward. This overview is intended to provide a general familiarization with the growing requirements for a well-run practice from the solo practitioner to the large institution and allow those responsible to identify areas where greater training and practice is needed.
