EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2023, A NEW FLORIDA LAW EXPLICITLY ADDRESSES CERTAIN CONTRACT PROVISIONS WITH RCM COMPANIES, CLIENTS, AND VENDORS, AS WELL AS DATA STORAGE AND DATA ACCESS.
The new law is applicable to providers in any setting who use a certified EHR. The law requires providers to ensure all data is physically maintained in the United States or Canada. The scope of the law is very broad and applies to all patient data and information, regardless of whether it is stored physically or virtually. HBMA members have many offshore partners and the law does not prohibit offshore work. However, the law is very broad and addresses data access, retrieval, transmittal and storage. The state plans to require new attestations and plans to audit for compliance.
To help our members gain understanding of how the new law may affect your business operations and client contracts, healthcare attorney, Catherine S. Dorvil of Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, PC. will be our guest on a webinar on July 11 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Ms. Dorvil will provide an overview of the law and answers to some common FAQs. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask real time questions.
