Overview

Working in today's diverse, fast-changing, multidisciplinary health care environment, record keeping varies greatly from health care professional to health care professional.

In addition to clinical requirements of a specific profession, additional state laws set forth the content and retention of other types of records, other than clinical records of a patient, that are also kept by the professional, such as supervisory agreements with other professionals subordinate to them as well as their own unique record content requirements.

The professional should attend to understand a broad perspective on the many sources of requirements for the retention and disposition of medical records across the spectrum of health care, both legal and private/contractual requirements.
One area covered specifically concerns electronic record such when mental health services are offered over the internet, the risks of breaches of confidentiality also vastly increase. And when the successful doctor-patient relationship is over, how does the health care practitioner providing a mental health service dispose of these electronic records?

In addition to the sources of rules that govern the confidentiality, retention, and disposition of medical records, there are other sources of requirements for compliance with facility laws and contractual agreements.

In addition to state law requirements, how long should the health care practitioner retain records for the possible, future defense of a malpractice claim for negligent treatment? Or to retain such medical records when the patient is a minor? Or to defend a possible complaint and disciplinary action by a state regulatory agency which could revoke the professional.

Ten minutes will be reserved for Q and A at the end of the webinar, and e-mail questions may be submitted to the presenter.
