HIPAA Compliance and EMR: What You Really Need to Know

2019-02-28T18:21:36+00:00Compliance, EMR Systems, HIPAA|

In 1996, Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which was designed to protect sensitive personal health information. Keep in mind that at the time of its passage, medical records were either written or printed, and stored in filing cabinets. Transitioning to electronically stored data hasn’t changed the HIPAA privacy and security obligations of healthcare providers, however, which means that all EMR systems must keep health information safe in accordance with the act. In this article, you will learn about the benefits of EMR, and associated security risks, as well as why and how to make your EMR [...]

Thanks to the ABLE Act, a Better Life Is Possible for the Disabled

2019-02-28T18:21:46+00:00Compliance|

As a result, many families have a difficult time adequately covering these expenses, in addition to other daily costs. While federal benefit programs like Social Security can be helpful in some cases, not all needs can be adequately met by such aid. Providing an improved level of care to the disabled was the prime motivating factor in the creation of the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2014. Also known as the ABLE Act, this legislation [...]
