First Healthcare Compliance hosts Rachel V. Rose, JD, MBA, principal with Rachel V. Rose – Attorney at Law, P.L.L.C., Houston, TX, for an interactive discussion on “HHS Final Rules, Patient Access to PHI & Health Apps Intersect.” On March 9, 2020, HHS announced the promulgation of two final rules – the ONC Final Rule and the CMS Final Rule. The fundamental objective is to expand an individual patient’s control over his/her health data. One aspect requires insurance plans to share health data with their patients in a format suitable for their phones or other device of choice. How does this impact provider liability in light of the Healthcare Apps Guidance issued by HHS?
Educational Objectives:
1. Explain the two new final rules, as well as the potential impact on providers.
2. Review the Healthcare Apps Guidance, which relates to HIPAA liability.
3. Provide suggestions for integrating the new rules while continuing to strive towards HIPAA compliance.
