Review the HIPAA and ROI material provided on the Release of Information (ROI) page this week. It is a HIPAA rule that all health information release must be tracked. It is technically called an Accounting of Disclosure. The materials suggest what type of information must be tracked. Some HIM department have an HIM software application that can be used to do this, while others simply use Excel or Word to set up a tracking system.
For this assignment, design a ROI Tracking document using an Excel spreadsheet or a Word table or form document. Be sure it includes each of the areas that are required on an Accounting of Disclosure.
One you have your form designed, fill in the information for one patient simply using made up information.
