In this episode of The Risk Perspective, we speak with Andrew Mahler, former OCR Investigator and CynergisTek's VP of Privacy and Compliance about the recently issued OCR guidance on patient privacy in the wake of The Supreme Court decision on Roe. Listen for a debrief of the OCR's guidance that addresses:
- How federal law and regulations protect individuals’ PHI and provides clarification on disclosure laws
- Information about what's protected, and what's not when using health information apps on smartphones.
- The guidance on Protecting the Privacy and Security of Your Health Information When Using Your Personal Cell Phone or Tablet
- Information on filing a complaint if you believe that a HIPAA-covered entity or its business associate violated your health information privacy rights or committed another violation of the Privacy, Security, or Breach Notification Rules
