  32. Locations

  33. Scenarios • Treatment/patient care • Payment • Regional health information organizations • Law enforcement • Prescription drugs • Operations/marketing • Public health/bioterrorism • Employee health information • State government oversight

  34. Focus Group Assignment • Identify the issues of the scenario • Describe how the situation in the scenario was handled in their particular work setting • Describe the ideal practice standard • Identify barriers that could possibly prevent the ideal practice standard from occurring

  35. Ideal Practice Recommendations • Easy, secure access to patient information • Interoperability (between computer systems) • Medication prescribing • Standardized regulations

  36. Easy, secure access to patient information • Common patient identifier • Online patient authorization to release medical information • Use of a Continuity of Care Record (CCR) • Use of an EHR by all healthcare providers with a standardized format • Use of a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) for easy access to all types of images • Use of a data repository • Automatic alert for reportable diseases • Access to information by third party payers for reimbursement only

  37. Interoperability (between computer systems) • Universal or standardized formats • Use of a Computerized Physician Order Entry (CPOE) system by all healthcare practitioners

  38. Medication prescribing • Online formulary list of all third party payers • Computerized alert system when ordering medications to prevent interactions, overdosing, etc.

  39. Standardized regulations • Uniformity of laws between states • Federal laws do not conflict with state laws

  40. Common Barriers Identified • Lack of resources • Technology issues • Legislation • Interoperability • Consumer issues

  41. Lack of resources • Cost of • staff education and training • the need for specific knowledge of HIPAA regulations regarding Release of Information (ROI) in an emergency such as bioterrorism • time to train staff on new policies and procedures regarding the use of the EHR system and hardware • needed hardware • upgrading of hardware as technology and requirements change • needed software • maintaining support once implementation is complete

  42. Technology issues • All facilities not utilizing the EHR, CPOE, PACS, etc. • Physician/staff resistance to new technology • Concern for security, confidentiality, and access • Password maintenance • Network maintenance • Planned and unplanned down time of the system • Unavailability of broad-band transmission in some areas

  43. Legislation • State-to-state differing regulations • Conflict with federal and state laws • Ownership of the medical information • Legal medical record

  44. Interoperability • Many EHR vendors and lack of interoperability between the systems • Lack of universal standards for different systems communicating with each other

  45. Consumer issues • Consumer education • Internet availability in rural areas • Security and confidentiality concerns • Ability to opt out of a Regional Health Information Organization (RHIO)

  46. Legal Analysis

  47. Information Reviewed • SDHIMA Legal Manual • Focus Group Scenarios • Relevant journal and Law Review articles • Additional information from related websites

  48. Findings • Current South Dakota statutes and administrative rules governing health information exchange need refining to better comply with federal HIPAA standards. • There is a need for plain English wording or interpretation to HIPAA compliance within South Dakota. Such a wording will help South Dakota physicians, hospitals, clinicians, insurers, researchers and managed care organizations limit the opportunity for legal and financial risk. • South Dakota should implement a system of balanced interests between patients and providers.

  49. Recommendations
