First Healthcare Compliance hosts Cristin Gardner, Director of Consumer Products & Markets, at Life Image, Inc., and David Schoolcraft, Partner and Chair of Digital Health Law Group, at Ogden Murphy Wallace, for an interactive discussion on “Upholding HIPAA Compliance and Streamlining Patient Access to Medical Data in Today’s Digital, Consumer-Driven Environment.” Patients expect their medical records to be available through digital formats, including mobile applications and have a growing number of digital tools available to them. In addition to pressure from patients, the federal government has recently made significant movement to make healthcare more consumer-friendly by creating easier access to ePHI through technology and giving patients more control of their health information. These changes represent the modernization of healthcare, and have a significant impact on compliance regulations and practices.
