In March 2019, the Department of Health and Human Services issued proposed rules to give providers and patients access to the electronic data stored in EHRs and health plans.
These rules require specific technology (APIs using the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources, or FHIR) to be built into all EHRs for providers. Using this technology, vendors can build applications to access EHRs from providers and get specific clinical data for use by other providers and by patients.

Healthcare professionals are under more stress than ever evidenced by increases in demand for better services that are more efficient and thorough, higher costs, reduced staffing, and diminishing resources. Many healthcare workers are putting in longer hours and for less pay.
From working twenty-four shifts to simply burning the midnight oil catching up on paperwork, the healthcare industry puts a great deal of stress and fatigue on the average worker and their relationships, including family.
Healthcare professionals bare witness to human suffering on a routine basis and are constantly reminded that tragedy, pain, and challenge often loom large in the midst of helping patients heal. As a result, compassion fatigue and burnout are major hazards of the profession that are becoming far too common.
In 2013, The US Department of Health and Human Services made major changes to rules implementing The Health Insurance and Portability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2003 (HITECH).
Among the many areas impacted by these rules (billing, marketing, research, IT security, etc.) is fund raising.
The amendments significantly modify the methods and practice that hospitals, their institutionally related foundations, and other healthcare charities may or must employ when using ANY patient or client information for fund raising.
Strong budgeting and forecasting is about getting the fundamentals right. This webinar will teach you which areas to focus the majority of your time and effort in order to achieve the best results.

Discussions, presentation, and webinars regarding HIPAA regulations are usually addressed from the perspective of what the regulations entail, the necessity of compliance with the regulations, and the consequences of willful neglect or non-compliance.

One errant email or text message can cost you tens of thousands of dollars in HIPAA fines and penalties and it doesn't matter who you're communicating with: patients, staff, providers or with insurance carriers.
A violation is a violation. And if you think it couldn't happen to you, think again. Text and email HIPAA violations are not always caused by what you might think. For example, you may think you are safe as long as you don't text patients - you're wrong. Many violations generally occur between providers messaging their staff. You can avoid getting hit with a HIPAA audit and violations with a few simple changes to your current processes. But you have to be able to identify the danger zones.
