2 HIPAA Humor (North Dakota Dept of Health) 2 HIPAA-Ectomy - the removal of individual identifiable health information from records HIPAA-Glycemia a low level of understanding of the HIPAA regulations HIPAA-Phobia a morbid fear of HIPAA regulations HIPAA-Thermia the unexplained chill that is running down the back of anyone associated with HIPAA
3 Please Note: 3 This summary/overview is not intended to be comprehensive. You must: Review our complete policies & procedures referenced later within this presentation; Consult with the agency s privacy officer for guidance/clarification on specific HIPAA-related issues. When in doubt ASK!
4 4 Federal Health Information Privacy & Security Provisions include: Privacy Rules effective since April 14, 2003, to: Keep protected health information (PHI) confidential, and Discipline individuals who fail to keep patient information confidential Security Rules effective since April 21, 2005, to: Ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all electronic protected health information, and Ensure compliance by the workforce
5 Privacy & Virginia Laws 5 In addition to federal laws, the Code of Virginia also addresses health privacy laws. Many provisions are found in sections :03 and :04. There are also other Code sections that may impact health information privacy in specific circumstances. The Virginia Human Rights regulations also include privacy protections for individual health information. The Office of the Attorney General works with the Privacy Officer to clarify when federal preemptions may apply, and when state laws provide more stringent privacy protections.
6 Goals of HIPAA 6 Strike a balance between government interest in health information and individual rights to maintain control Allow individuals more control over their personal health information Impose accountability for breaches of confidentiality or security Set boundaries for providers regarding patient s privacy and confidentiality Require safeguards to protect against reasonably anticipated unauthorized uses or disclosures of health information Encourage use of electronic record-keeping systems for health data, while protecting against reasonably anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of the information
7 Privacy & Security Rules Are Necessary 7 because Look at some recent headlines: Identity Theft is America s fastest growing crime Hospital fires employees for leaking VIP info to media Hackers steal tens of thousands of ID numbers from popular websites Contract employees accused of stealing PHI Personal info being collected and sold (using telephone numbers) Internet connects sperm donors with offspring.

10 10 Safeguarding Private Information Is Everyone s Responsibility at DBHDS If you have access to any patient or personal information in any format, you are responsible for keeping it safe and confidential. There are consequences for individuals who violate privacy of security regulations. Consequences may include disciplinary actions as well as civil and criminal penalties.
11 11 Bottom Line Privacy is Just Good Customer Service Keeping each individual s best interests first, While striving to preserve their privacy rights. and then it s good Record Management: Keeping records accessible, but safe and secure at the same time, while Preserving the integrity of each record.
12 12 How Do Individuals Know What Their Privacy Rights Are? The DBHDS Notice of Privacy Practices must be given to each individual upon admission into our system. It is posted on our website, and tells them how: PHI may be used or disclosed by the care provider To access their personal medical records To request to correct their records if they appear incorrect To request alternative communications of their medical information that are more confidential To request restrictions on release of personal health information To request an accounting of certain disclosures of personal health information To object to certain disclosures of personal health information
13 Let s Think About It 13 Mrs. Brown calls her husband s physician and asks for his lab test results. She says that Mr. Brown is at work and asked her to call. The test results are positive for a sexually transmitted disease. The physician declines to give the results to Mrs. Brown and asks her to get her husband to call personally for the lab results. Mrs. Brown is irate and states HIPAA laws say you can share health information with a family member. Who is right in this case? Mrs. Brown The Physician
14 14 The Physician

39 39 False

They ask one of our facilities or Central Office units for a list of names and addresses of these persons. We do not need to get authorization to release this information. True False
41 41 False
42 Speaking of Confidentiality 42 How Much Is Enough? How Much Is Too Much? Three Types of Problem Disclosures Incidental Accidental Intentional
43 Incidental Disclosures 43 If you are taking reasonable precautions to safeguard an individual s health information, and someone happens to hear or see PHI that you are using, you are not necessarily responsible for that type of disclosure.
44 44 Reasonable Precautions to Avoid Incidental Disclosures Speak in as low a voice as possible Move to as private an area as possible within the circumstances at hand Ask individuals if they are comfortable with the setting (and offer alternatives if possible) Cover documents and shield computer screens in public areas to make them as secure as possible
45 45 Examples of Incidental Disclosures A visitor or someone else sees or hears while you are Reviewing records & orally coordinating services at an assessment station or appointment desk Viewing and discussing lab results, satisfaction survey results, or a personal complaint with an individual or other provider in a shared working space Discussing an individual s condition or treatment with him or her, or with family in a semi-private room Discussing an individual's condition with students or other trainees during rounds in an academic institution or other training setting Each of these situations still require you to take reasonable precautions!
46 Accidental Disclosures 46 Mistakes Happen If you disclose private data in error to an unauthorized person Acknowledge the mistake, notify your supervisor or Privacy Officer immediately Learn from the error --- change procedures or practices as needed Assist in correcting or recovering from the error ONLY if instructed to do so don t try to cover it up or make it right on your own. Immediately report Accidental disclosures to Privacy Officer!
47 Intentional Disclosures 47 If you ignore the rules and carelessly or deliberately use or disclose protected health information inappropriately, you can expect the possibility of: Disciplinary action Civil liability Criminal charges
48 Intentional Violations: Examples 48 Improper Use of Passwords can become Intentional Violations Sharing, posting or distributing personal password or account access information Allowing co-workers to use your login Knowledge of unauthorized use of passwords by coworkers, and failure to report Attempting to acquire or use another person s access information or authorization
49 49 Intentional Violations: More Examples Improper use of Computers can become Intentional Security Violations Failing to secure your workstation which contains PHI ing PHI outside of the DBHDS network system Posting PHI on the Internet without authorization, or with inadequate security measures
50 50 Intentional Violations: Even More Examples Accessing PHI outside of your professional need to know capacity - either from personal curiosity or as a favor for someone else Accessing PHI at home and leaving it visible to other relatives, friends, roommates, etc. Selling or inappropriately releasing PHI to the media Discussing PHI in public hallways, elevators, etc. without taking reasonable precautions
51 When To Report Violations 51 All Accidental and Intentional violations, known and suspected, must be reported immediately So they can be investigated and managed So they can be prevented from happening again So damages can be kept to a minimum To minimize your personal risk Incidental disclosures do not need to be reported to the Privacy Office but if you re not sure, report anyway!
52 Let s Review 52 You re walking in the hallway behind a staff member who is talking on his cell phone. You can clearly hear his conversation, which includes references to several individuals receiving treatment in our system names, locations, and conditions. At one point he says, you won t believe who was referred here for treatment Are you required to report this as a privacy breach? Yes No
53 53 Yes
54 Administrative Safeguards Available to You: 54 Policies & Procedures - about using & disclosing electronic data, and assigning responsibilities for securing e-data, including PHI, during disasters Privacy & Security Officers- to consult for policy interpretations and to manage complaints & incidents Education & Training - to inform all workforce members of the privacy and security rules Internal Audit Tools -to determine routine compliance with privacy & security rules and regulations
55 Physical Safeguards 55 Identification All staff, visitors, volunteers, etc. should display approved ID badges in all areas where PHI documents are accessible Locks, Doors and other Barriers Lock offices, workspaces, treatment areas, labs, conference rooms, storage rooms, etc. where there are PHI documents Document Covers Protect all paper documents containing PHI in folders, binders, etc. Transport documents with PHI in a manner to avoid inappropriate disclosures
56 PHI in s 56 Individual to Care Provider: If an individual who is receiving, has received, or is seeking services within our system wishes to exchange messages with you Inform him or her of the risks for accidental and unauthorized disclosures when using You can receive s from these individuals, but never use PHI in s to them without written authorization Provider/Staff to Provider/Staff Use s only within the DBHDS network system
57 PHI Disposal 57 Disposing of document or other formats containing PHI - Preferred Method: Shred, deface, etc. or destroy immediately Next Best: Place in secure container in secure place Follow DBHDS policies for destruction of records All records must be retained or destroyed in accordance with HIPAA regulations and Library of Virginia guidelines
58 Think Fast 58 Your coworker has forgotten his password and needs to enter some critical data in the system before going home, so you let him use your log-on and password While in the system, he looks up some personal identification information about another co-worker. Later, that co-worker complains that she suspects someone has accessed her PHI. If an audit is performed, who will be responsible for the authorized access? My friend I will Both of us No one, it was work-related
59 59 I will
