The changes have been introduced to enhance patients’ access to their medical records and boost the privacy of medical history but it has also increased work load for physicians. With $1.5 million being charged as fine for security breaches, the new changes will have to be taken seriously if practices don’t want to face penalties and damage their reputation. A plan will have to be developed for implementing the required changes in a proper manner.  Under the new rule, a breach will include even the “risk” of disclosure or impermissible use of Patient Health Information. In order to meet this requirement, a complete risk assessment will have to be performed by practices for minimizing the possibility of a breach  The Omnibus Final Rule has changed the definition of a BA (Business Associate) who does not work at the practice but has access to PHI. To comply with this modification, all the BA agreements will have to be reviewed in order to see if there is a need for replacement or revision. This needs to be done because a BA could potentially include a clause in the old agreement stating that he cannot be held liable for PHI breaches  Frequency of HIPAA audits will increase along with fines and to prepare for the same, practices will have to perform risk assessments on a quarterly basis to find security loopholes  Employees will have to be trained on updated obligations and Notices of Privacy Practices will have to be redistributed  Analysis will be required for current arrangements for compliance with restrictions on PHI sale and marketingy www.medicalbillersandcoders.com Copyright ©-2013 MBC.
