PHI for Media and Marketing: Ensuring Your Health Center is HIPAA Compliant

May 16, 2019 - 1 pm ET
Training Details

Recent HIPAA settlement agreements with the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) have cost covered entities between $100,000 to $2.2 million in penalties for disclosing protected health information to the media without patient authorization. 

While OCR has provided covered entities with guidance on allowing the media to access to treatment and other areas, few covered entities realize that such access is only permitted in very limited circumstances unless the individual being filmed has signed an authorization. When creating their own promotional videos, print publications or web images, health centers must develop a process for obtaining and retaining patient authorization. 

As health centers work with the media to highlight their programs, they must carefully navigate the patient authorization requirements under HIPAA.
