The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) requires that all information about medical patients must be kept strictly confidential and private. This federal law covers any place serving medical patients, including hospitals, clinics, doctors’ and other health-care providers’ offices, and more.
Practically, this means you must keep your patients’ health information confidential and private the whole time they are at your place of business, from the time they check in to the time they check out. That means that lines and queues must be arranged so that patients’ interactions with you and your staff are kept private and confidential at all times. It is not OK, for instance, to have a group of patients cluster at one desk with one of your staff where they might overhear a discussion or view one another’s confidential medical records.
The demands of this law are stringent, and the penalties for failing to abide by it can be quite severe, but Crowd Control Experts offers an affordable and easy solution that will help you meet the letter and the spirit of this far-ranging law.
