    Medical Records Compliance

    I am currently attending Davenport for Health information Technology. I am working towards an associates degree in Health Information Technology and take the exam for RHIT.  My career goal is to work in compliance in Medical Records/Billing and Coding. I would like to get a general idea of what a day to day looks like for you? Is there anything in your schooling that you wish you would have known before you got into your career choice?

    Re: Medical Records Compliance

    The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), which was passed by Congress in 1996, specifies who can access or retrieve a patient’s medical records. This law set limits on the use and release of medical records, and established a series of privacy standards for health care providers to follow HIPAA compliance. The HIPAA privacy and security obligations of a healthcare provider are fundamentally unchanged by transitioning to an EMR / EHR system, but may require adjustments in practice.
