Patient information will not be shared online, on social media, and otherwise. Patient data will only be destroyed after at least fifty years of no reappearance of the patient. Team members will be required to ensure all-time protection of patient data by keeping passwords and encryptions on.
9 Training programs on patient records handling and disposal are mandatory for all health care workers, including interns. Training Topics 1. Policy application- all health care workers should be trained on the facility's policies concerning handling and disposal of patient records and data. Federal regulations and laws are also other topics that the workers must explore during the policy training (Koontz, 100, 2015). 2. Social media use- all stakeholders in the facility should be taught how to use social media and avoid using it. Managerial Oversight Managerial oversight means that the facility's management or executives are fully involved in the health care delivery services and play their leadership roles in ensuring that patient records are protected (Koontz, 100, 2015). To avoid issues of privacy breach by healthcare workers in the facility, the management should: Should ensure that all members in the workforce understand the importance of privacy and confidentiality. This is outlined in the facility's mission. Make a selection of the authorized health care workers who are allowed to access patient records and information for specific purposes. Ensure that all patient records are restricted and only accessible to the facility's relevant and appropriate health care workers. The management should ensure that the relevant staff is issued with distinct security keys, passwords, and keys for accessing patient records in the facility.
10 The management should also ensure that the passwords are changed over a certain period depending on the security threats. The management should conduct monthly audits to review the use of information by the health care workers and understand how records and patient data was shared among team members. The audits will also review social media posts made by health care workers. The management should also ensure backup systems that will substitute the primary method for failed systems or when the primary system is down. The management should also ensure that all the facility's systems and networks are secured and cannot be accessed by outsiders. The management will also organize monthly checks of the facility's system to check for any bugging, viruses, or any hacking activities with malicious intentions. The management should also document all policies and ensure that all healthcare workers sign an agreement to show that they agree to the guidelines for reference when any crisis arises.
