Recently, I was asked about what privacy awareness training can you do at the clinic to keep privacy awareness top of mind.

How do you keep Privacy Awareness top-of-mind in your practice?

As an employer and health care provider, you are responsible to provide training to all of your employees about privacy awareness. If you don’t provide the training, if the employees don’t understand the policies and there is a privacy breach, then the healthcare provider is more likely to be held accountable under the legislation and face penalties including fines and even prison!

Protect your organization and your patients. Equip your staff with the information they need to confidently and correctly handle personal health information. Healthcare businesses who want employee and supervisor level privacy awareness training to support key policies, procedures and risk management programs need a privacy awareness training program.

Here are some easy to implement tips to help you get started with your privacy awareness program.

Mergers and acquisitions and closing and consolidating are activities that healthcare practices undertake at various times in the life cycle of a business.

There are many reasons why a practice may consider buying or acquiring an existing healthcare practice.

You might be expanding your practice to rapidly expand the scope of your services, location, or space. Or you might be downsizing your practice. Or maybe you're merging multiple practices into one streamlined practice so you can better manage your profit margins.

You might be looking to diversify your services or, perhaps, create an area of super-specialty that will provide a competitive advantage for your healthcare practice.

You might be wanting to acquire skilled employees or healthcare providers that you couldn't recruit in your current circumstances.

You might be acquiring or consolidating real estate infrastructure, medical equipment or electronic medical records, computer networking, or perhaps the management team. Or you might be exploring opportunities for economies of scale or cost-cutting.

As a custodian (including physicians, pharmacists, dentists, chiropractors, nurse practitioners, optometrists, and more) you need to ensure that the patient's health information remains private and secure, and that patients have continued access to their health information.

In this episode, I’m going to help you with

5 Important Steps Before You Merge Or Close Your Healthcare Practice To Ensure Your Continued Privacy Compliance

  1. Inventory All Your Existing Patient Records
  2. Patient Records Systems
  3. Agreements
  4. Existing Documents
  5. Privacy Impact Assessment Amendment Plan
