HIPAA Breach Evaluation and Reporting - What Qualifies as a Reportable Breach and how to Report It

The HIPAA Breach Notification Rule has been in effect since 2010 and has been significantly modified in 2013. We will discuss the origins of the rule and how it works, including interactions with other HIPAA rules and penalties for violations. Whenever there may be a privacy issue involving Protected Health Information, there may be a reportable breach under the HIPAA regulations. Not all privacy violations are reportable breaches, though, so it is essential to have a good process for evaluating incidents to see if they have resulted in a reportable breach.

How to Prepare for HIPAA Enforcement in 2017

Being in compliance with HIPAA involves not only ensuring you provide the appropriate patient rights and controls on your uses and disclosures of protected health information, but you also have the proper policies and procedures in place. If audited or the subject of a compliance review you will be required to show the government you have all the necessary documentation in place for safeguarding patient Protected Health Information and indicate how you addressed all required security safeguards. This starts with the understanding the fundamentals of a HIPAA and how you will be required to demonstrate your organization's compliance program.

Care Transitions Based on Predicted Readmission Risk: A Model of Hospital-Community Collaboration

This 402 bed regional medical system has developed a comprehensive transition program to identify and guide patients from acute care through comprehensive discharge planning and into community care. In the process, hospital readmission reductions were attained using transition nurses to proactively manage patients with a high risk of readmission. Using the modified LACE (Length of stay, Acute admission, Co-morbidities and ER visits) tool to identify patients at risk for discharge delays and/or readmissions and analytics to evaluate target populations, the program has been successful. The analytics allow us to correlate the patient risk of readmission with the actual observed readmission rate, the total cost of readmission encounters, the clinical drivers of readmissions. They also provide a financial model that calculates the overall impact of readmission rate reductions on reimbursement, cost, and value based purchasing payments. The program includes 30 day any cause readmission and follows specific clinical populations of AMI, Heart Failure, Pneumonia, Hip/Knee Replacement, Stroke, COPD, and Sepsis.
