Healthcare regulations such as HIPAA require Disaster Recovery plans protect individual practices and hospitals from data outages. Very little has been published or regulated, however, regarding emergency responders’ access to health records in the wake of a natural or man-made disaster.
Case studies as far back as Hurricane Katrina and as recently as Super-Storm Sandy have demonstrated tremendous public benefits when responders accessed health records online. These benefits include quality-of-care, fraud reduction, and reduced liability, but the public is still wary of privacy issues when it comes to individual medical data.
In this session, we will examine the broad issues surrounding public health data, disaster recovery, and solutions that will ultimately save lives and improve the Disaster Response models.
Topics will include:
- HIE, CCR, CCD, EHR, eRX . . . A brief overview of the Alphabet Soup in healthcare data
- HIPAA and Patient Privacy
- State Disaster Response Policies, Agencies, and Stakeholders
- Aggregation vs. Integration of medical data – how the U.S. military solved the fundamental challenge
- Access Challenges
- Deployment of Points of Distribution (PODs) using an eRX Model
- Disaster Recovery model using Cloud-Based Electronic Health Records
