1.  HIV records and HEDIS review

Posted 09-12-2017 21:25

Hi All,
What is the typical process for your facility when releasing medical records containing an individuals HIV information to the patient's other providers? Also, does that ROI  fall under the protection of TPO through HIPAA for a HEDIS review?

Thank you!

We treat HEDIS and other audits as part of the TPO requests because they affect both payments and it is a part of operations.   We still log the requests in our ROI log.
