The Patient’s Bill of Rights under the HIPAA privacy rule



Posted by: Jenny Laurello
HIPAA privacy rule, Patient's Bill of Rights, PHI, webcast

Patients have always had, among other rights, the right to access their protected health information (PHI) under HIPAA’s privacy rule, though relatively few have taken advantage of it. Patients also have the right to amend their PHI, request restrictions regarding their PHI, request an accounting of disclosures of their PHI and file complaints regarding the uses and disclosures (or lack thereof) of their PHI.

With 80 million baby boomers about to retire, marketplace trends are signaling a heightened interest among patients in exercising these rights, however few providers are ready for this onslaught. In this webinar, Carlos Leyva, Esq., attorney and managing partner of the Digital Business Law Group of Pennsylvania, and CEO of 3Lions Publishing, Inc., publisher of the HIPAA Survival Guide, covers the Patient’s Bill of Rights (PBR) and what providers need to do in order to meet the anticipated demand.
