Practical Compliance Advice for Covered Entities and Business Associates
Author: Kate Borten
Publisher: Hcpro, a Division of Blr
Written by highly respected author Kate Borten, CISSP, CISM, this updated edition explains how the Omnibus Rule affects organizations that are subject to HIPAA. It will help facilities and business associates understand how they and their information security programs can remain in compliance with new and continuing regulatory requirements. This second edition emphasizes that security is not a one-time project and reminds readers that they should already be performing risk assessments to comply with the HIPAA Security Rule. A new Introduction explains the significance of the HITECH Act and the Omnibus Rule to covered entities and their business associates (BA). HITECH made BAs directly liable for Security Rule compliance, and the Omnibus Rule went further, revising the definition to include all downstream subcontractors with access to PHI. This closed a major loophole in privacy protection, significantly expanding the number of organizations deemed BAs and directly subject to HIPAA compliance and enforcement. This book explains how HIPAA and the Omnibus Rule do the following: * Clarify the definition of BA, which now includes all downstream subcontractors with access to PHI * Clarify that covered entities and BAs must have ongoing programs to protect electronic PHI, including regular updates to security documentation * Revise and modernize the definition of electronic media to align it with the terminology used by the National Institute of Standards and Technology * Ensure that access termination procedures apply to all workforce members, not only to employees * Encourage encryption but not require it across the board

Health Information Transactions, Privacy, and Security
Author: Roy Rada
Category: Data protection
People need to understand the information systems ramifications of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). They are eager to get unbiased and comprehensive information about what HIPAA means for them. This book, [email protected]
Essentials addresses that need. Content: This book is organized into the following three main chapters: 1. Transactions and Codes, 2. Privacy, and 3. Security. The Transactions and Codes Chapter relates to exchanges between healthcare providers and payers. The Chapter covers transactions, code sets, identifiers, and impact. The Privacy Chapter focuses on the relationship between patients and the healthcare system, and the chapter addresses consent and authorize, access and amend, administration, other regulations, and impact. The Security Chapter explains how to keep information safe and covers: compliance life cycle, real-world security policy; computer security models; and technical security mechanisms. The healthcare providers and payers have agreed that standardization of the transactions between them would be helpful. Standards for transactions and code sets are vital to efficient and effective communication among healthcare organizations. The impact should be higher quality at less cost. Privacy relates to power. When one person has another person's private information, that other person loses some control. This power perspective sheds light on the intense conflict that surrounds privacy discussions. The Privacy Rule gives the patient strong rights over his or her information. The Security Chapter describes how organizations address the proposed Security Rule. Workflow management is vital to healthcare organizations and when done properly gives security as a derivative. Therefore, organizations should see the proposed Security Rule as a challenge to improve their workflow. The reader is assured that the author will watch for any changes in law or regulation. When a significant change occurs, such as a Final Rule is issued (or withdrawn), the author will make available updated information. Audience and Related Work Anyone working in or around healthcare could benefit by reading this book. The targeted audience is people in healthcare organizations that have some information systems responsibility. More particularly, managers in hospitals and information systems consultants have responsibilities that require them to know the content of this book. The book also serves many others, such as nurses or radiologists within the provider community, information systems staff within an insurance company, and salespeople in consulting firms or lawyers. A company might use the books to help persuade staff about the relevance of HIPAA to a company's information policies and tools. The material assumes no particular background of the audience as regards information systems or healthcare. However, maturity is assumed in terms of understanding both healthcare and information systems.
A User’s Guide
Author: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality/AHRQ
Publisher: Government Printing Office
This User’s Guide is intended to support the design, implementation, analysis, interpretation, and quality evaluation of registries created to increase understanding of patient outcomes. For the purposes of this guide, a patient registry is an organized system that uses observational study methods to collect uniform data (clinical and other) to evaluate specified outcomes for a population defined by a particular disease, condition, or exposure, and that serves one or more predetermined scientific, clinical, or policy purposes. A registry database is a file (or files) derived from the registry. Although registries can serve many purposes, this guide focuses on registries created for one or more of the following purposes: to describe the natural history of disease, to determine clinical effectiveness or cost-effectiveness of health care products and services, to measure or monitor safety and harm, and/or to measure quality of care. Registries are classified according to how their populations are defined. For example, product registries include patients who have been exposed to biopharmaceutical products or medical devices. Health services registries consist of patients who have had a common procedure, clinical encounter, or hospitalization. Disease or condition registries are defined by patients having the same diagnosis, such as cystic fibrosis or heart failure. The User’s Guide was created by researchers affiliated with AHRQ’s Effective Health Care Program, particularly those who participated in AHRQ’s DEcIDE (Developing Evidence to Inform Decisions About Effectiveness) program. Chapters were subject to multiple internal and external independent reviews.
