Two New FAQ's on OCR Website
OCR ( Department of HHS's Office for Civil Rights) has added two new FAQs. This is the first new guidance in three months. One FAQ concerns disclosures by covered entities to medical device company representatives. The second FAQ concerns disclosing a patient's location or condition to a person who can help notify the patient's family.
