HIPAA, the abbreviation for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, was created in 1996 to regulate proper storage and transmission of a patient’s medical information. HIPAA was designed to ensure privacy and increased standard of care for the patient.
Patients are provided the opportunity to list the names of family members, health care providers, and others who can have access to their medical information. Healthcare practitioners found violating HIPAA regulations may face hefty consequences, such as a fine or criminal penalties.
It cannot be overemphasized how important it is to save and store patient files in accordance with HIPAA release form guidelines. Familiarizing yourself and office staff with all the HIPAA regulations can prove to be overwhelming.
Ensuring that all proper guidelines are enforced is even more cumbersome. Healthcare practitioners who turn to a HIPAA release form advisor, find that it can become quite costly.
