Making Revisions to Closed Medical Records

Learn how to manage closed medical records and avoid personal and institutional HIPAA violations.

Proper recording of the delivery of patient care continues to evolve in the areas of medical record management, portal and digital communication, and litigation asserting negligence. Keeping up with and responding to the changes in laws and regulations can be daunting. This topic will provide practical applications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Best practices for HIPAA compliance will be shared using case scenarios when managing closed medical records and potential consequences for health care institutions and providers when found to be noncompliant will also be discussed. The content of this program is critical for any employee who works with or is directly involved in managing open and closed medical records so they can avoid personal and institutional HIPAA violations.
