Confidential Communications

2003-01-28 Thread Halfhill, Annette
Can anyone please give me ideas of what they think patients would request
with the Restrictions on the Uses and Disclosures of PHI and the
Confidential Communications. We have the following in place already, and are
trying to write a common-sense policy about these issues. It is hard to
anticipate what else the patients might request. Thoughts or past requests
that you have come across?

1. We are anticipating requests for alternative billing locations
2. We have privacy codes in our system to address the following, which we
use during care and after discharge (especially the no information given to
anyone).
$ = FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY 
(Information given ONLY to family members)

+ = NO INFORMATION  
(No information is given to anyone)
 I have no information on a patient by that name. 

% = NO PHONE CALLS  
(Do not give out the extension or ring any calls)
 The patient has requested that no phone calls be placed to their room.


 = NO VISITORS/NO CALLS
(You may give only the condition to callers)
The patient has requested that no phone calls be placed to their room.


! = NO VISITORS 
(No visitors are permitted to visit the patient)

*= MEDIA EVENT  
(No further information will be given)
No further information can be released about this patient or their
condition.

FW: JCAHO BAA

2003-03-05 Thread Halfhill, Annette
Interestingly, I just happened across a letter to JCAHO from the AHA
requesting changes to their BA agreement to make it compliant with HIPAA on
the AHA members only website.

On that BA thread, we just recieved a letter from JCAHO wanted us 
to complete their BAA form.  Following previous messages, 
shouldn't I (since I'm the CE) be sending them our form, and we 
shouldn't be signing their's?

Hello All!
I don't belive it's required according to the regulations, however, what is
everyone doing about having a version of the NPP in Spanish or other
languages?
