Hospice & Palliative Care: Essentials of Information Security & Privacy
Working in hospice provides unique benefits and challenges. Every day, staff handles a great deal of sensitive patient information, including social, medical, and financial data. They may also be privy to employers’ vendor data and network information.
Information security is critical to hospice care, and mobile care givers are even more at risk. Medical identity theft is becoming increasingly common. An information breach can lead to disciplinary or legal action. Hospice professionals – and volunteers and aides – must understand and uphold privacy and information security requirements. Join us to learn about information security and your responsibility to keep your employer, your patients, and yourself safe from breach, theft, and fraud.
