Have you reviewed your lab’s strategies for HIPAA compliance lately? Regardless what side of healthcare you’re on – provider, facility, biller, etc. – we are all governed by the same expectation to protect patient PHI in any format (paper, electronic and verbal). Enforcing strong policies for employees is essential to maintaining a knowledgeable staff and minimizing the risk of simple human error that can lead to HIPAA breaches.
