Student Name Capella University NURS-FPX4040 Managing Health Information and Technology Prof. Date   Protected Health Information (PHI) and HIPAA Protected health information (PHI) is individually recognizable information related to an individual’s health, or service payment. It includes personal information, medical records, lab results, billing information, etc. HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act that maintains the privacy and security of PHI and ensures healthcare providers implement privacy and security rules such as informed consent to prevent breaches or disclosures of PHI (Moore & Frye, 2019). Privacy, Security, and Confidentiality Privacy is the patient’s right to measure how much healthcare professionals can exchange their PHI. Security is the degree to which healthcare professionals are allowed or restricted to access patients’ personal health information. Confidentiality is restricting the access of PHI from stored EHR data by unauthorized persons. Examples Privacy concerns: Revelation of patient health data on EHRs without seeking informed consent, lack of adequate patient access to their medical records on EHR Security concerns: Unsuitable access to patients’ stored information by unauthorized personnel (family, friends) and authorized personnel (sharing passwords) Confidentiality Concerns:  Improper exchange of PHI in EHR outside medical staff  (Bani Issa et al., 2020). Significance of Interdisciplinary Team in Safeguarding PHI on EHRS Safeguarding patients’ PHI on EHR is a multifaceted concern requiring the comprehensive efforts of the interdisciplinary team. The collaborative efforts of healthcare providers, IT specialists, compliance officers, and legal professionals in health administration are crucial for ensuring the safe use of EHRs.  Evidence-Based Strategies to Reduce Data Breaches Related to Social Media Use and PHI Social Media Usage and PHI Interprofessional teams must be aware of the consequences of using social media for sharing patients’ PHI and be vigilant on their social media activities.
