HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA; Pub.L. 104–191, 110 Stat. 1936, enacted August 21, 1996) was enacted by the United States Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. It has been known as the Kennedy–Kassebaum Act or Kassebaum–Kennedy Act after two of its leading sponsors. Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.

I am mapping a HIPAA 837 EDI to a database table.  I need to put thing such as patient first name, last name, and middle initial from the independent fields in the EDI file to one field in the database table separated by a semi-colon.  So I have this:

concat screenshot
Which doesn't work AT ALL.  I can map the individual field, such as Name Last or Organization Name over to Patient name by itself and that works fine.  But concat gives me nothing.  When running the debugger, the resulting SQL statement literally says:

INSERT INTO [dbo].[mytable] ([PatientName]) VALUES ((CAST(NULL AS varchar(255))))

It's like Altova isn't even trying.  Any ideas?  Concat is one of the main things I need to do.

Patients in clinic need to be able to type their name and chief complaint into a spreadsheet or database at a kiosk, but they can't see any data that has been entered previously, for HIPAA reasons (can't see another patient's name or complaint).  All the data needs to be viewable by the registrar so they will know who is in the waiting room.  I've done excel spreadsheet which uses a macro to move the data from the registration spreadsheet into another spreadsheet, which is what I want.  However, I don't know how to make it so the spreadsheet is not accessible by the person standing at the kiosk.

Hello Experts,

This is probably a dumb question, but I have never worked with a text matching tool before (other that find and replace) and need guidance.

I need to complete a data discovery on sensitive information - mainly PII and/or PHI (flat files, NAS shares, endpoints).

The software that I have looked at, dtSearch and FileLocator Pro both say they can find this data. I only see the option to type in a word or a phrase at a time.

Can you please tell my how to set up products like these to  search for any PII or PHI? Are there dictionaries to purchase separately or something?

Thank you,
Steph M

A blue line appears on the screen when viewing documents scanned in from a Dell 3465dn printer.  This happens intermittently and I am unable to reproduce the issue with any regularity.  Checked 9 documents, all scanned within a few hours before I found one with the line on it.  This printer is B&W only and I have received no complaints of the line appearing on prints but the main document scanned is rarely printed out.  I wish I could post an example, but I work for a medical company and doing so would be a clear violation of HIPPA regulations.  Just wondering if anyone has any ideas on what could be causing this.  The scanner bed is clean and there are no scratches.

Currently looking for suggestion on a video conferencing unit that would be used in a health care environment, it needs to be in compliance with HIPPA and Unit has to be a standalone unit with no subscription cost.
