    Esta Lynn posted a response which I think lends itself nicely to an informative compare and contrast on how people are managing this.

    The questions below are within the context that the person referred to was granted access to ePHI appropriately in the past.

    What is the timeframe (example: 24 hours, 2 business days) that an individual's access to ePHI is terminated:
    A. When the person leaves the organization voluntarily (examples: retirement, resignation, hitting the lottery)?
    B. When the person leaves the organization involuntarily (example: termination for cause)?

    Thanks!
