The SILHIMA board is excited to present to you a virtual option for our December Quarterly Educational Meeting. This event is packed with various topics and speakers ranging from Coding, Release of Information, Health Informatics, and Denials Management.

It’s Not Just About HIPAA Anymore; Hot Topics and Current Trends
Kelly McLendon, RHIA, CHPS

This timely presentation delivers an update of the most important healthcare privacy and security rules, guidance and regulatory changes, including but not limited to, HIPAA, e.g. CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act) and GDPR (EU’s – General Data Protection Rule). The session also covers some evolving best practices that address these rule changes. Other recently Hot Topics include the new Patient Access litigation results, new ONC (office of the National Coordinator of Healthcare IT) and CMS Interoperability and Information blocking rules based on the 21st Century Cures Act which is heating up to be a focus of a battle over proprietary vendors vs more open access and Patient Access, but are adequate privacy protections going to be in place?

The presentation is intended to impart a large volume of information about the rapidly changing regulatory privacy and security environment in a relatively short timeframe with comprehensive slide content useable by attendees after the presentation as they adopt and train others on these subjects. Mr. McLendon is well known for condensing and simplifying the complex presentation content into easily learnable points with his signature delivery style.

Topics such as; Information Blocking, Interoperability, 42 CFR Part 2 (SAMHSA), patient access, any new HIPAA updates, the new final and Interim Final ONC and CMS rules, the Federal Trade Commission’s actions and various security issues such as APIs, mobile devices, phishing and ransomware are constantly being revised by Mr. McLendon and may be discussed.

Federal Court Rulings and OCR Fines – Tips on Supporting Patient Right of Access
Elizabeth Delahoussaye, RHIA, CHPS

This informative session will address the recent federal court decision on the misuse of patient-directed record requests and engage participants in discussion. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the decision including implications for handling patient access requests versus third-party requests.

We will also review civil monetary penalties OCR has issued in regard to patient access and distill suggestions for how organizations can protect against potential OCR complaints. We will close with a discussion on how third parties are responding to the federal court decision and how providers can support patients in understanding their health data privacy rights.

Electronic Documentation Templates – Year-Round Reviews and Revisions to Comply with Coding Guideline Updates
Lolita Jones, MSHS, RHIA, CCS, AHIMA Approved ICD-10-CM/PCS Trainer

Many healthcare organizations (HCOs) have a formal committee and process, such as an Electronic Health Record (EHR) Documentation Governance Workgroup, that is charged with overseeing the development and annual re-evaluation of electronic documentation templates (EDTs). Unfortunately, many EHR Documentation Governance Workgroups don’t perform year-round reviews and revisions of EDTs based on the release of new or revised official coding guidelines. This presentation will address how HIM professionals can take the lead in developing and maintaining a year-round evaluation process to ensure EDT compliance with coding changes and guidelines that are released throughout the year by the Cooperating Parties and the American Medical Association.

The Symbolic Relationship Between HIM and Health Informatics
Dasantila Sherifi, PhD, MBA, RHIA

The presentation will differentiate between health information management and health informatics, and highlight their potential for growth and collaboration.
