Understand the laws that govern medical records in Florida to stay compliant and minimize legal risks.This topic on Florida Medical Records and Confidentiality Laws affects all health care providers regardless of the venue where health care is rendered. With the adoption of electronic medical records in the majority of health care institutions, primary care offices, and outpatient facilities, the way health information is protected has substantially been altered. The accuracy of medical record entries will help all involved in health care delivery to minimize exposure to claims and improve patient care. Gathering and distributing accurate information timely to other health care providers in other institutions while protecting that information from unauthorized uses or disclosures will promote quality of care while protecting the privacy rights of clients/patients. The content will examine current privacy safeguards under state and federal law protecting the confidentiality of health information. Health care providers who fail to comply with the laws of medical records and confidentiality may be subject to professional disciplinary actions. This educational topic should be a must for all who record patient care and associated information, distribute, review and request health records, risk managers, claims consultants and medical malpractice attorneys.
