Patient Access to the Medical Chart
Presenter: Linda Garrett, JD, Garrett Consulting
Everything you wanted to know about a patient's right to access their own chart:
- How soon do you have to provide a copy? How much can you charge? What about access by inspection?
- Can you give the patient a "summary" instead? How does the HIPAA preemption of State Law affect this rule?
- Is there any part of the chart you can deny access to? What about psychotherapy notes? What about parents' access to their kids' charts?
- And . . . learn more about the January 23, 2020 Court ruling in the Ciox v. Azar case setting aside parts of the 2013 HITECH Act (Omnibus Rule) and 2016 DHHS Guidance to Surveyors.
