WEBINAR DETAILS

Hospices and home care providers face growing record risks. Mismanaged, misplaced, or missing medical and business records are more than a nuisance – they are a liability. You must preserve, protect, produce, and purge records in compliance with HIPAA, federal and state laws, and e-discovery guidelines, including protected health information (PHI), electronically protected health information (EPHI), personally identifiable information (PII), and other business-critical information. Failure to safeguard protected health information could lead to HIPAA investigations, financial penalties, and disgruntled patients. Mismanagement of business records could trigger million-dollar lawsuits, damaged reputations, and decreased revenues.

Don’t leave record retention to chance. Best practices call for establishment of comprehensive record retention policies and procedures. Participants will garner effective strategies for record management along with valuable tools, including a sample record retention policy and guidelines and an informative whitepaper. These resources will establish a baseline for managing records, minimizing risks, and maximizing compliance.

THIS WEBINAR WILL BENEFIT THE FOLLOWING AGENCIES:

  • Hospice
  • Home Health
  • Home Care
  • Palliative Care

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

This informative session is a must for anyone responsible for managing electronic and paper records, including records and information managers, compliance officers, health care lawyers, IT staff, human resources personnel, privacy officers, and administrators.
