HIPAA Compliance for Remote Workers During COVID-19 Pandemic [Infographic]

by | May 14, 2020 | Resources, Infographics | 0 comments

The COVID-19 scare and fear of the disease spreading has led many companies around the globe to go for remote working and letting their employees work from home to promote “social distancing”. During this period, healthcare organizations should also be prepared to follow suit, because, even if it’s remote working, all employees need to stay compliant with HIPAA privacy and security requirements just as in the office. Reliable medical billing and coding outsourcing companies have stringent measures in place to ensure that all personal health information (PHI) they receive remains secure and confidential.

According to the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), “in this current health crisis, although certain HIPAA sanctions are being waived, it’s not an excuse for mishandling patients’ PHI. It’s very important to take the same physical and security measures to safeguard the PHI you are trusted with and for that you need to create a HIPAA-compliant work space”.
