HIPAA Privacy Rule
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) Privacy Rule gives patients greater access to their medical records and more control over how their health information is used. The federal rule requires healthcare providers and health plans to protect patients’ personal health information; this applies to both electronic and paper records. CMR Institute offers an eModule describing the purpose and the patient’s rights under the HIPAA Privacy Rule. The eModule also outlines the responsibilities of healthcare professionals related to protecting patients’ rights and concerns about compliance with the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
