Confused about Health Privacy and Security with EHRs?

Posted by: Lindsey B Hoggle, MS, RDN, PMP

Questions about "HIPAA", health care privacy and security always require considerable time to answer. As the United States adopts and uses electronic health records and other sources of health information technology, multiple parameters should be used to evaluate risk. While data breeches involving credit cards allow for an easier recovery—such as credit monitoring and issuance of a new credit card, health data breeches are complicated. If private, very personal data that could be used to discriminate against individuals is erroneously accessed or shared—it cannot be "called back", "replaced" or "corrected". As privacy and security standards and policies are tightened, there is a great "one stop shop" for privacy and security of health data using EHRs. Members should also check their local, state level laws on health data policies as these pre-empt any national requirements. For more information, go to: Health Information Privacy, Security, and Your EHR.
