Certain records are excluded, and the rule establishes exceptions to “information blocking. This rule and the implications for health care providers will be discussed. 

This webinar will present information on the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) from the Office of Civil Rights (OCR), including differentiating between patient access and when an authorization is needed.There will also be a discussion on the standards that The Joint Commission (TJC) changed to comply with the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoPs) requirements.Other topics to be discussed include security of health information and OCR Security Risk Assessment.
