HIPAA: Rights and Responsibilities Related to a Patient's Right of Access

Understand what rights HIPAA gives patients to access their medical information and how you are expected to respond to this important legal right.

Since 2019, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has not only provided significant guidance for covered entities for providing patients with timely and complete access to all or a portion of their health information but also has brought 18 separate and very costly enforcement actions against health care providers and health plans who have failed to live up to HIPAA's standards. This topic provides a timely, practical look at exactly what HHS expects a covered entity to do in recognizing and honoring patients' requests to access their health information and will help you chart (or recalibrate) your course for compliance under HIPAA.
