ONC Releases Privacy/Security Guide for Professionals

On May 8, the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for HIT (ONC) announced the release of its “Guide to Privacy and Security of Health Information” written for various healthcare professional audiences.

Certain Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and “meaningful use” items are discussed, but the guide is intended to be more of an educational resource about general privacy/security issues than a regulatory guidance.  In other words, the information goes far beyond what is required and speaks to the broader concept of a privacy/security culture in the workplace.

This guide is a product of the Office of the Chief Privacy Officer of the ONC.  This office is essentially charged with engaging the very active and involved patient privacy/security advocacy community.
