Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Minimum Necessary means:

    • A.

      Accessing PHI you need to know to do your job

    • B.

      Accessing a medical record to find out about a neighbor's condition

    • C.

      Telling a co-worker about the medical care of a patient who is also well known to the community

    • D.

      None of these answers are correct

    Correct Answer
    A. Accessing PHI you need to know to do your job
    Explanation
    The concept of minimum necessary means that when accessing PHI (Protected Health Information), an individual should only access the information that is necessary for them to perform their job duties effectively. This principle ensures that the privacy of patients' medical information is protected and that only authorized personnel have access to the information they require to carry out their responsibilities. The other options mentioned in the question, such as accessing a medical record for personal curiosity or sharing patient information with a coworker without a legitimate need, would violate the principle of minimum necessary and compromise patient privacy.

    Explanation
    The correct answer is A, B, and C are correct. Cook County Health and Hospital System (CCHHS) is allowed to use and disclose Protected Health Information (PHI) without patient authorization for treatment, payment, and operations purposes. This means that they can access and share patient information within the healthcare system for providing medical care, processing payments, and conducting administrative activities necessary for the functioning of the hospital system.

    An allowable incidental disclosure is:

    • A.

      A visitor ovehears two nurses discussing a patient's condition on the elevator

    • B.

      A therapist discusses the patient's clinical condition with the patient in a waiting room full of patients

    • C.

      A patient overhears the doctor speaking to another patient in a shared hospital room.

    • D.

      All of these examples are allowable incidental disclosures.

    Correct Answer
    C. A patient overhears the doctor speaking to another patient in a shared hospital room.
    Explanation
    All of the examples given involve incidental disclosures, which are unintentional disclosures of protected health information (PHI) that occur as a byproduct of a permitted use or disclosure. In this case, a patient overhearing the doctor speaking to another patient in a shared hospital room is considered an allowable incidental disclosure because it is not intentional and occurs in a setting where privacy cannot be fully maintained. However, it is important for healthcare providers to take reasonable steps to minimize incidental disclosures and protect patient privacy as much as possible.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement is true because it states that at registration, patients are provided with a Notice of Privacy Practices that explains how their health information may be used. This notice is a requirement under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and ensures that patients are informed about their rights regarding the privacy and security of their health information. By providing this notice, healthcare providers are promoting transparency and giving patients the opportunity to make informed decisions about their healthcare.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Posting patient information on a blog or social media site, even without mentioning CCHHS (Cook County Health and Hospitals System), is not acceptable.

Healthcare providers are bound by laws and ethical standards to protect patient information and should never disclose it on public platforms.

    • B.

    • D.

      Write your password down and place the password next to your computer

    Correct Answer
    C. Create a password that is difficult to guess and is not based on your personal information. Use upper and lower case letters, numbers, and other characters.
    Explanation
    Creating a password that is difficult to guess and not based on personal information, while using a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers, and other characters, is an example of proper password practice. This ensures that the password is strong and less vulnerable to hacking attempts. Sharing passwords with co-workers, using personal information in the password, and writing the password down and leaving it next to the computer are all examples of improper password practices that can compromise security.

    • A.

    • B.

Proper disposal of PHI is crucial to ensure privacy and prevent unauthorized access. HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) regulations require healthcare organizations to implement secure methods of disposal, such as shredding or incineration, to protect patient information. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    If you suspect a privacy breach or you are aware of a privacy breach, you should:

    • A.

      Tell the employee they should not be breaching a patient's privacy.

    • B.

      Not worry about it because it is only one patient's information.

    • C.

      Report your concern to your supervisor and to Corporate Compliance

    • D.

      Call the patient and tell them you think their privacy was breached

    Correct Answer
    C. Report your concern to your supervisor and to Corporate Compliance
    Explanation
    If you suspect a privacy breach or are aware of one, it is important to report your concern to your supervisor and to Corporate Compliance. This is the correct course of action because it ensures that the appropriate authorities are made aware of the breach and can take appropriate action to address the situation. Telling the employee they should not be breaching a patient's privacy may not be sufficient in addressing the issue, as it may require further investigation and intervention. It is also not advisable to ignore the breach or contact the patient directly, as this may not be within your jurisdiction and could potentially complicate the situation further.
