Privacy and Confidentiality are the key fundamental elements for building trust between a health care provider and the patient. When compromised or breached, the patient-provider relationship can suffer, making for potentially poor outcomes. In the Privacy and Confidentiality Report template, you will review a real-life scenario in which Ben Smithfield observes potential areas of concern where either privacy or security of protected health information (PHI), or both, may be breached. Managers are responsible for ensuring substantial compliance with not only the organization’s policies but also state and federal laws that outline the standards for privacy and security of a patient’s PHI to maintain trust and confidence and to avoid serious fines and penalties.
