As medical records law continues to evolve, the complexities of how your organization manages these sensitive records now will impact your legal liability later. When improperly handled, your records management practices are far reaching and potentially damaging to your organization. Proper records management is only a small part of protecting your business from damaging legal issues that will happen without understanding the full scope of what your responsibilities are as it pertains to HIPAA and patients’ rights.

Join us as we share insights and examples of what you must do and what you should never do when handling this very sensitive subject matter. Review how these laws impact your practice, discover strategies for managing records, and identify best practices for releasing health information. Not knowing does not protect your organization from financial responsibility for damages. Register today.
