To achieve Safe Harbor, organizations must render patient information as unreadable, indiscernible, or inaccessible by either encrypting the data appropriately using an approved technology and algorithm, or by destroying the information using an approved method of destruction. One approach is to employ shredding as part of an information lifecycle and data destruction program.
The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has included a thorough review of Breach Notification and proper destruction of patient information in its recently initiated random audit program.
What do you need to know about successfully integrating shredders into your data privacy and security program?
Webinar Program Objectives include:
- Increase awareness of the risks associated with healthcare information and breaches.
- Outline what HIPAA and HITECH say about protection and destruction of patient information.
- Explain the specific requirements for shredders to meet Breach Notification Safe Harbor.
- Introduce data classification and information lifecycle management concepts and practices.
