OCR Privacy Brief: Summary Of The HIPAA Privacy Rule

OCR Privacy Brief: Summary Of The HIPAA Privacy Rule, U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Civil Rights.

25 page booklet summarizing the HIPAA Privacy Rule to provide HIPAA compliance assistance. Caregivers should review this and familiarize themselves with HIPAA. Health care providers, who are limited by this rule in disclosure of protected medical information, will require you and/or your elderly loved one to sign HIPAA disclosure acknowledgement forms at virtually every doctor visit or hospital stay. And, as a family caregiver, you may find some health care providers reluctant to share with you medical information about your elderly loved one. You should acquaint yourself with the legal requirements of HIPAA. And, to be safe, have your loved one grant to you a Health Care Power of Attorney or Proxy (the form that is used in your loved one’s state), to assure that you will not be denied access to his or her medical information which may be critical to your ability to help your loved one as a family caregiver.
