Who is required to keep medical records?
Individual providers, facilities and government programs are required, and have a responsibility to keep medical records. The sources of laws that dictate what have to be in your medical record are going to arise from state laws, Medicare, the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act, and 42 CFR Part 2. It’s important to keep in mind that HIPAA does not govern the form or content of Medical Records. However, it does regulate who may have access to the protected health information contained in medical records, as well as who must be given access to the PHI contained in medical records. This video reviews examples of electronic case law and HIPAA.
