An Ethical Use of Electronics, EHR, and e-Anything
Essentially, covering in 90 minutes the basics of E everything that applies to your clinical work. We will give you the questions to ask your IT people, because you should not implicitly trust them, because the law will hold you accountable more than them. We will first cover the general principles of electronic compliances as laid forth in HIPAA. We will then discuss how this applies to your desktop/laptop/iPads and smart devices, other electronic equipment such as routers and modems. We also cover the use of email, secure mail and your EHR/EMR.
We will discuss the pros and cons of using the cloud for your data storage and EHR/EMR, i.e. knowing what a HIPAA compliant data center looks like. Principles in the use of encryption and passwords and other security principles will also be covered.
Why should you Attend: Unless you are 100% sure you've thought through every angle of your patient's electronic PHI and you sleep like a baby never concerned about this then you need to attend.
