HIPAA. I know it, you know it. It’s the biggest name in healthcare information regulation, and behind it lies not only the foundation of rules and statutes that protect patient information but also the backing of federal enforcement. That enforcement, of course, helps keep patient data safe, but it can also be an occasional obstacle for records retrieval. Navigating miles of different statutes and rulings to retrieve patient information can be confusing, especially for those unfamiliar with the healthcare information environment.
Records retrievals fall under that umbrella. Because records retrievals often involve reaching out to multiple providers in various healthcare settings, it’s crucial that retrieval organizations understand the implications of their actions. How can you successfully attain patient records and deliver them to clients while ensuring that your actions comply with HIPAA’s regulations and authorizations? And what if you have questions on related laws such as the 21st Century Cures Act? It can be difficult to decipher on your own the difference between protecting patient information and engaging in electronic health records information blocking. That’s where T-Scan’s HIPAA, HITECH, and 21st Century Cures Act course comes in. Offered through Law Practice CLE, an industry-leading provider of continuing legal education, the course centers on the exchange of HIPAA-protected information. Taught by our very own records retrieval professor, our course covers the requirements, updates, and different regulations bridging together HIPAA, HITECH, and the 21st Century Cures Act.

We combine that with our experience surrounding the 21st Century Cures Act and our unique HITECH record retrieval system to create an all-inclusive curriculum that covers everything you need to know regarding the exchange of HIPAA-protected information.
