Work-from-Home Record Retention Rules for the Healthcare Industry

Speaker: Nancy Flynn
Live Webinar |From: Jun 15, 2021 - To: Dec 31, 2021

Have you updated your record retention policy & procedures for work-from-home employees? In the age of COVID-19, best practices call for an updated record retention policy governing remote staff’s use and retention of records via personal devices, sites, and accounts. With so many employees working remotely, the record risks facing the healthcare industry is greater than ever. Mismanaged, misplaced, or missing medical and business records are more than a nuisance. They are a liability. You are required to preserve, protect, produce, and purge records, including PHI, EPHI, PII, and other business-critical information in compliance with HIPAA, federal law, state data breach notification laws, and e-discovery guidelines. Best practices call for the establishment of a strategic comprehensive record retention policy & procedures, for all employees, including those working from home. Failure to safeguard PHI and EPHI could lead to HIPAA investigations, financial penalties, and disgruntled patients. Mismanagement of business records, including PII and ESI, could trigger million-dollar lawsuits, damaged reputations, and decreased revenues. You can’t afford to leave remote record retention to chance. Compliance with federal/state laws and HIPAA’s Privacy Rule & Security Rule is mandatory. Attend this program to learn best practices-based strategies for effective WFH record management. You’ll leave with valuable tools, including a sample record retention policy, record retention guidelines, and an informative whitepaper to help you manage records, minimize risks, and maximize compliance.
