You need better process efficiency as it relates to releasing Protected Health Information (PHI), and you recognize the role that technology plays to get you there, but you are reluctant as to whether PHI security will be sacrificed at the altar of a more powerful and productive workflow that technology provides.
Naturally, document security and compliance should be at the top of everyone’s mind, especially since PHI has not only become more a target for hackers in recent years, but Covered Entities also face the possibility of stiff penalties for data breaches based on the degree to which these occur.
We get it. You need peace of mind, and ChartRequest has got you covered. Check out this white paper explaining how we address security and compliance as it relates to the Release of Information (ROI) process.
