Maintain medical record compliance when presented with a Power of Attorney request.

When an individual claiming to be a ‘Power of Attorney' requests access or a copy of a patient's medical record, are you uncertain whether your organization can release the patient's medical record to that individual? Does your organization have questions about when a signed Power of Attorney is valid and when it becomes ‘effective'? Does your organization know when HIPAA legally requires access to records to be provided to an Authorized Representative, like a Power of Attorney? Do you have questions about whether the answers to such questions change if the request is made in the context of litigation? This topic will answer these questions and others. Individuals managing requests and releases of medical records and information for an organization will benefit from a review of laws governing the validity of a Power of Attorney, as well as HIPAA and state laws governing legal rights to medical record access. Many organizations struggle with whether or not medical information may be released in the context of litigation when the request is submitted by a Power of Attorney. HHS has spoken and provided guidance on this issue, which will be covered in this material. This information is critical for hospitals, providers and other organizations that maintain medical records so they can ensure that they are compliant with HIPAA and other medical record release requirements.
