HIPAA allows hospices and home care practices to communicate with patients, providers, and peers via email and text messaging – if formal guidelines and procedures governing use, privacy, security, and notification are followed.  Noncompliance with HIPAA email and text rules can result in costly fines, failed communications, and compromised electronic protected health information (ePHI).  

Are your hospice or home care communications with patients and other internal and external parties HIPAA compliant?  Do you understand and follow related laws, including the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA)?  Have you implemented annual audits, policies and procedures, training programs, and technology tools to ensure electronic messages reflect HIPAA’s use, privacy, and security rules?  Do you require business associates and their subcontractors to adhere to a written HIPAA-specific Business Associate Agreement (BAA)?  Join us for a comprehensive review of email and texting risks, rules, records, and regulations, and gain timely information and proven best practices to shape and support your strategic HIPAA policy and compliance management program.
