Keep Your Records Straight and HIPAA-Compliant With TMA CME
By Robin Rumancik


You have strong protections in place for your medical records, and you know that proper oversight requires much more than alphabetic filing in a secured cabinet.

But are you truly impervious to liability?

Don’t let a minor oversight become a major problem.

TMA’s in-depth publication, Managing Your Medical Records, will help physicians and front office staff better understand the rules of consent, release, and disclosure.

Get up to speed on everything from practical, efficient methods for record organization to best practices for record storage that’s HIPAA- and HITECH-compliant. The publication also addresses appropriate processes for retaining, copying, and destroying medical records.

Managing Your Medical Records is accredited for 4 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 4 Ethics credits. But that’s not all: Physicians who are insured with the Texas Medical Liability Trust may earn a 3% discount for completion of 2 hours of approved risk management CME lectures.

For even more education, sample forms, and tips, visit the TMA Medical Records Resource Center and explore our additional CME programming on medical record compliance.

As with most of TMA’s CME programming, Managing Your Medical Records is free for TMA members and their practice staff thanks to a generous sponsorship by the Texas Medical Insurance Trust.
