Beyond HIPAA: Don't Forget Regulations Such as the Life Safety Code

Beyond HIPAA: Don't Forget Regulations Such as the Life Safety Code

  Broken LinkReport Broken Resource Link
Healthcare organizations have had a long-standing commitment to protect the privacy of patient health information during all phases of record creation, maintenance, storage, and final disposal. This responsibility is further required by federal and state laws and regulations, as well as by accreditation standards that specifically address the protection of patient information through the entire life cycle of the record"including disposal. However, with tremendous resources and energies focused on compliance with HIPAA privacy and security standards, HIM professionals can sometimes lose sight of the big picture and be unaware of other critical external regulatory and accrediting influences. One example is the Life Safety Code, which guides the disposal of paper health records.
