Now that the HIPAA Privacy deadline has passed, covered entities are addressing one of the most significant challenges associated with HIPAA -- providing an accounting of disclosures of protected health information for as far back as six years.
The Office of Civil Rights may have a different version of "treatment," "payment," and "operations" than what you have established.
This 90-minute audio-conference on CD-Rom, "Accounting of Disclosures: Strategies to Efficiently and Effectively Meet HIPAA Requirements" helps you to ensure that you have the proper processes in place to address the accounting of disclosures challenges.
