The NEW...BC...Before Corona...BIG Takeaway.

    We actually had some fun talking about the serious issue of uses and disclosures of PHI during current times.

    In doing so...I came up with the following which I will use as a demarcation of time to the BEFORE and NOW....and that is "BC"

    No...not that BC which comes along with AD...but BC as in Before Corona.  Look for me to use it because in some areas we certainly now have HIPAA requirements that existed BC and are different today...and we want to develop our understanding of these.

    We also, in my opinion, want to find an easy way to differentiate between compliance and HIPAA in the past as it compares to the present.  So now you know what I am referring to when I speak to "BC" in onlist, offlist, and online sessions.

    Thanks to all who attended!

    I think I'll start using that with family and friends, and if they ask giving you credit of course.

    Thanks Carl!

    I'm thinking of putting an infographic with the "BC" theme as it relates to HIPAA...which I think given the growing confusion about discretionary enforcement and what CEs can do now that they could not do BC...might be worth a good way to communicate some key points that are getting lost in some of the noise out there.

    Stay tuned.

    I like that idea. There is a lot of misinformation as word spreads from employee to employee something tends to get added, i believe. I even heard one employee say (in an e-mail) " ...... now that HIPAA has been suspended ......." Yikes!

    That would be sweet. An infographic of the BC theme would be helpful!
