CHIA Webinar – Clearing the Confusion: Court Ruling on the Misuse of Patient-Directed Record Requests
Listen as our in-house expert Rita Bowen presents Clearing the Confusion: Court Ruling on the Misuse of Patient-Directed Record Requests. This presentation engages attendees in an essential conversation regarding the recent court ruling on the misuse of patient-directed record requests. In what is being seen as a strong rebuke to years of regulatory overreach, the United States District Court for the District of Columbia entered an order on January 23, 2020 that invalidates provisions of the 2013 Omnibus Rule to the Health Information Portability and Accessibility Act (“HIPAA”) and 2016 guidance issued by United States Department of Health and Human Services Office (“HHS”) on the fees that may be assessed to patients for copies of medical records. Attendees will take home advice on how to operationalize the new ruling, and learn how the ruling impacts provider organizations, third-party requesters, and the healthcare industry in general.
